Winery COGNAC FRAPIN

In the world of Cognac, the house of Frapin may not be the first that comes to mind; somehow it has managed to travel just a little under the radar. For 700 years and twenty-something generations! But not any more.

The Frapins have been winegrowers in the sleepy little Cognac town of Segonzac since 1270 and with over 200 hectares under vine, Cognac Frapin is the largest estate in the famed Grande Champagne sub-region. In due course, the Frapins expanded their repertoire to distillation and their Cognacs enjoyed great renown amongst the houses, traders and cognoscenti in the 19th century; indeed most of their production was earmarked for the houses of Hennessy, Remy Martin and Courvoisier.

That all started to change when Beatrice Cointreau took over the reins from her father Max in 1984 and began restoring Frapin to its rightful place as one of the most venerable of Cognac brands. Since then their extraordinary stocks of old, even pre-phylloxera Cognacs have been released under the Frapin label to create some of the most sought-after spirits in the world.
