Tasting Notes

Summer of 1995. The vineyard is basking a hot and dry season. Abundant and fleshy grapes promise a memorable harvest. Harvest joyfully begins late September. The vineyard keeps its promises. The grapes are healthy and the harvest, generous. During the vinification, the beautiful vitality of the fruit produces a juice with a marked acidity and a solid alcoholic strength. With a double distillation on lees, the brandy is fragrant, sealed with the aromatic seal of a prodigal year.

Flatters the eye, brilliant and silky, lit by orange hews.

This vintage opens delicately with an arpeggio of delicious notes: a zest of citrus fruits, the brightness of a tangerine. Then unfolds towards spicy fragrances of dried peach and gingerbread. A loose bouquet, a subtle symphony.

The 1995 vintage – 25 years old gives pride of place to the aromas of the orchard, fruit in full bloom which evolve on the palate towards fine vanilla and then delicately spicy notes. The warm nutmeg flavour balances the roundness of warm dried apricot. The finesse and balance go hand in hand until the lingering final note of rancio, long and characteristic of skillfully aged old cognacs. - Distiller Note

Frapin is located in the centre of the Grande Champagne Premier Cru du Cognac region in the sleepy little town of Segonzac, the finest designated region in Cognac. It is the only merchant located in the town and only sells Cognacs produced from grapes sourced from its own 778 acre estate in the heart of the Grande Champagne region. The Frapin family have been winegrowers since 1270 and mostly sold their Cognacs to Remy Martin, Hennessy, Courvoisier and other houses until the 1980's. Since 1984, when the Cointreau family took over what was then a forgotten brand, it has been selling increasing quantities of brandies. These brandies have been kept in new wood for longer than their competitors, so confident are they with the quality of it's brandies , the size of its stocks represent 18 years of sales (an amount of 2 to 3 times the quantity of the stocks held by its competitors). Frapin keeps its best cognacs in new oak for up to 2 and a half years, depending on the amount of colour (and therefore tannin) the spirit has absorbed. - Importer Note
