A quick tour at Chateau fontpinot, the house of Cognac Frapin

A quick tour at Chateau fontpinot, the house of Cognac Frapin | The Cognac and its vineyards | Scoop.it

Cognac : the very word embodies sophistication and class.  This ancient drink should not be confused with brandies from Spain, Cyprus or other countries  ...

Jean-Luc Montembault's insight:

Frapin has a specific position in the Cognac world. Like few trading houses it is known almost worldwide but it is not a trading house ! 

Like a number of family estates, Frapin distils wines coming only from their own vineyards and market only them but they are known worldwide like no other family estate !

If to this specific position you add the quality of their cognacs coming from the best growth area, the Grande Champagne vineyards, then you understand why visiting this estate is quite an experience ...

Jean-Luc Montembault's insight:

Aromas are a door to access and discover the cognac. A proof for the sceptics: Frapin, the largest direct producer, has launched a range of fragrances and who could decide this, if a woman.
Bravo and congratulations Beatrice Cointreau.

Oldies but goodies.

 

Jean-Luc Montembault's insight:

1270 is the year when Frapin family located in the Charente vineyards.


This family succeeded to combine the commercial techniques of the major trading houses and the know-how to traditional winemakers-distillers to offer today cognacs only from its own vineyards.


Only this is worth making the trip to Segonzac
