      Distiller Notes

      Chateau Fontpinot XO unveils a gorgeous autumnal golden-orange color with warm highlights.

      This XO cognac is the fruit of long aging in dry cellars, which gives it a subtle, complex, refined, long-lasting bouquet consisting of candied fruit aromas (dried apricot, dried fig), marzipan, hazelnut, nougat, then port notes and finally the famous “rancio” character.

      Balanced, rich and complex on the palate with aromas of dried fruits and candied fruits and an exceptionally long finish. Add a drop of water to Chateau Fontpinot XO to let the aromas breathe and soften the power of the cognac.

      Pierre Frapin, France
      Pierre Frapin  Winery Image

      Family-owned Pierre Frapin is a rarity among cognac producers - one of few such firms to own its own vineyards. Frapin's 741-acre domain, which includes 494 acres of prime Grande Champagne vineyard, took the Frapin family five centuries to amass. It constitutes the largest single vineyard in this top-rated appellation where average holdings seldom exceed 30 acres. The Frapin family's ties to the Cognac district of the Charentes region of southwest France span over 20 generations, extending all the way back to the early 1200s.

      Today Frapin is owned by Geneviève Frapin and her husband, Max Cointreau. Management is in the expert hands of their daughter, Beatrice Cointreau.

      Widely regarded as the finest and most complex grape-based spirit in the world, Cognac follows rigorously strict production guidelines. It is made exclusively of wine—most commonly from Ugni Blanc—from the Charente and Charente-Maritime regions surrounding the town of Cognac in southwestern France. After a second distillation in antique copper pot stills (called charentais), the spirit is transferred to French oak barrels and aged a minimum of two years (VS). Cognac is classified by both age and region (Cru). The Grande Champagne Cru and Petite Champagne Cru, both having shallow limestone soils, are the most respected.
