FRAPIN 750, A LEGENDARY COGNAC...

- 1697: King Louis XIV awards a coat of arms of apothecary to Pierre Frapin.
- 1858: birth of Pierre Frapin who set a family legendary milestone when he tirelessly replanted the vines destroyed by phylloxera and created the brand Cognac Frapin.
- 1872: the Chateau Fontpinot is completed, it is the epicentre of the vineyard into the heart of Grande Champagne.
To celebrate this anniversary, Frapin is selling 21 exceptional bottles symbolising the 21 generations of the Frapins, who have treaded the Grande Champagne soil over the past 750 years.
