A very old brandy exclusively from the 240-hectare vineyards of the Frapin estate with extended ageing in new oak barrels and the age-old expertise of the Frapin family.
"Exceptional with a cigar, but just as good without." Patrice Piveteau, Cellar Master tasting tip: Absolutely superb with Honduran cigars and their characteristic aromas of honey, spices and dried fruit. Served at room temperature, it expresses the famous rancio, a distinct aroma of old cognacs, appearing at 15 to 20 years of age, characterized by flavors of walnuts, hazelnuts and dried fruits combined with dried flowers. To be enjoyed with the best cigars.
