Description

Frapin Cognac XO Chateau de Fontpinot is made from estate-grown, chateau-bottled Grande Champagne grapes and eaux-de-vie that are between 15 and 20 years old. It possesses a rich aroma of damp earth, succulent fresh fruit, flowers, and spice. Palate entry is off-dry, caramel-like, and properly oak; at midpalate, the flavor deepens, offering lip-smacking tastes of light toffee, almond butter, and vanilla extract. Finishes candied and rich.

Grapes are harvested in early October at Frapin’s top-rated Grande Champagne vineyard, a week before most producers, to obtain higher levels of acidity. Young vines are fertilized the old-fashioned way with nothing more than cow manure and mulch from pulverized vine clippings.
