Reserved for VIPs, this blend enriched with very old brandies combines age, roundness, bouquet and finesse. These are the old reserves of the Frapin family.

A cognac with rich bronze tones and a natural purity, Frapin VIP XO attracts attention from the first glance.

On the nose, pleasant floral notes and a beautiful aromatic complexity punctuated with subtle woody touches. An overall elegance typical of aged Cognacs from Grande Champagne.

After its delicate aromas its power in the mouth comes as a surprise. VIP XO offers a palate of flavours, revealing in turn chocolate notes, dried fruit, candied fruit, and gingerbread. The expression is sophisticated and complex, with depth, but without ever losing the original freshness of the fruit. Composed with the precision of a sonnet, VIP XO is an ode to the passion behind its creation and taste.

Beautiful Brandy has finesse elegance and a unique character an ULTRA SMOOTH tasting experience. On the palette it gives the sensation of liquid silk and the first drops taste of dusted icing sugar on the surface of your tongue. Well worth the purchase.
