70cl * 40% ABV * France
One of the few remaining independent houses, Frapin source all of its fruit from 240 hectares of Premier Cru vineyards in the Grande Champagne subregion of Cognac. A smooth and complex brandy, rich in raisined fruit and marmalade notes. On the finish, a hit of warming Christmas spice and the faint suggestion of salted caramel. A dependable after-dinner pour.
