Chateau-Fontpinot-of-FrapinCognac Frapin has announced that the single estate Château Fontpinot has recently acquired 11% more vineyards within the Grande Champagne region bringing the total to 240 hectares.

Jean-Pierre Cointreau, CEO of Cognac Frapin said: “For many years, Cognac Frapin has been keen to enhance the size of its vineyards to meet the increasing demand for its Cognacs from global markets.

“This ‘fruitful alliance’ between our historical know-how and the superb terroir will now allow us to increase our production and give Frapin further opportunities for an even brighter future.”

The Cognac house’s current range includes a VS, VSOP, Signature, VIP XO and Extra. The Extra Cognac comes exclusively from the ancestral family reserve and is harvested, distilled and aged in casks conserved by Pierre Frapin and his descendants.

The Frapin family has been established in the South West of France since 1270, initially as a family of winegrowers, before becoming distillers for the last 20 generations.
