Results Cognac Masters 2023 !

This year’s Cognac Masters took place in London and, once again, a wide range of cognacs were examined by experienced tasters. The judges scored each participant on appearance, nose and palate. They were captivated by the quality of the products tasted this year. The highest distinction was awarded to the cognac that scored 90% or more and one of our cognacs was awarded the honorary title of “Cognac of the Year”, out of the 110 participating cognacs.

Here are the magnificent results obtained by our cognacs…

Cognac of the year 2023 !

Our Cognac Frapin 1990 – 30 years old receives the double distinction of Cognac of the year 2023 and Vintage of the year 2023. Awarded in the “Vintage-Single Cru” category, it was tasted a second time by blind tasting, in competition with all the cognacs awarded in the different categories, in order to be finally named Best Cognac of the year 2023.

This mark rewards the citrus and honey aromas and the famous rancio of this 1990 vintage, harvested, distilled and aged for 30 years on our estate in the heart of the Grande Champagne region, 1er Cru of the appellation.

This recognition also pays tribute to its long ageing in our dry cellars, offering notes of dried fruit, candied fruit and exceptional length.

15 year old Frapin named Best Cognac in its category !

The “15 ans d’âge” is awarded the title of best cognac in its “XO Single Estate” category. The only XO Frapin to offer a blend of cognacs from both wet and dry cellars, it bridges the gap between these two worlds of slow maturation, obtaining from one its roundness and suppleness, and stealing from the other its finesse and elegance…
