Jason Wilson writes:  This is Château Fontpinot’s counterpoint, aged 20 years in humid cellars, and much rounder, richer and sweeter in style. There’s candied orange and ginger and mulled spices on both the nose and the palate, and citrus throughout, with — of course — prominent notes of cigar box. Supple and easy-drinking.  - Vinous 91

 

ognac Frapin Cigar Blend XO give a tribute to subtle notes of « Rancio ». It promises memorable instants of tasting since it is combined with cigars.

This treasure benefited of the age-old know-how of FRAPIN with a distillation over lees that gives complex aromas, a concentrated bouquet and a long finish. Then this cognac aged in humid cellars in Limousin oak barrels that give vanilla notes. After 20 years of ageing, this eau-de-vie releases notes of aged port mixed with the scent of wooden cigar boxes, typical of a Grande Champagne cognac.

The bouquet reveals mellow notes of vanilla and dried fruits, walnuts and hazelnuts, thanks to extended ageing in new oak barrels and the age-old expertise of the Frapin family. Very smooth, complex, balanced, subtle aromas of aged port mixed with the scent of wooden cigar boxes, typical of a Grande Champagne cognac distilled over lees.
