Category Cognac
Region France, Cognac
Brand Frapin
Château de Fontpinot unleashes a veritable concentration of aromas: generous vanilla, wild flowers, and candied fruit recalling oranges and apricots, accompanied by nuances of Port and the famous 'Rancio', so characteristic of very old Cognacs. This very old Château de Fontpinot Réserve offers balance and a persistant finish. It shows the true signature of a Grande Champagne Cognac that has been patiently aged on its lies.

Made from estate-grown, chateau-bottled Grande Champagne grapes and eaux-de-vie that are between 15 and 20 years old. 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.
