Installed in southwestern France since 1270, the Frapin family has been a family of winemakers, then distillers for over twenty generations, owning a 240-hectare Vineyard in Grande Champagne.
It is the Grande Champagne, classified Premier Cru of the Region of Cognac, which will become the land of choice of this family settled at Château of Fontpinot.
In its family tree, the family Frapin counts the famous writer Antoine Rabelais in the 16th century. As a small nod to history, the House Frapin has as its logo the golden feather of the writer.
The wines are distilled with the lees at Frapin. After the traditional double distillation known as "Charentaise" the newly distilled brandies are housed for a quarter in new barrels and for the rest in red barrels see older.
The house Frapin elaborates a wide range of Cognacs, the oldest of which date back to 1888.
Description Frapin Cuvée Rabelais.
The color is amber with orange reflections.
The nose is punctuated by scents of oranges and candied apricots, followed by discreet woody scents.
The palate melts into notes of dried fruits and liquorice, before revealing the complex aromas of the famous Charentais rancio, reminiscent of tobacco and the cigar box.
Infinite, its length in the mouth completes the extremely progressive tasting of this limited edition.
