Character Goatson
Frérot Extra is second of its name, but first of its extravagance.

While its younger brother XO showcased the exquisite flavors of all crus of Cognac, Extra is 100% Grande Champagne – the Premier Cru, the aficionados call it.

But terroir is just one of the pillars upon which we built this delightful Cognac; the other is age. The Cognacs in the blend were aged between 30 and 50 years, and we’re betting on their rich and complex characters to enchant your palate.

The opulent profile starts with a bouquet of raspberries and fresh orchard fruits, evolving into a palate of caramel, walnut, and candied fruits. The finish is lavishly long with an extra amount of rancio and a hint of tobacco.

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Frérot Extra Cognac and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

Character Dogson
The wine used for Cognac is very dry, acidic, and thin but excellent for distillation and aging.
Rancio is a highly desirable nutty flavor usually found in extra-aged fortified wines (Port, Sherry, Madeira, Marsala …) and fruit-based Spirits, namely Cognacs, Calvados, and Armagnac. It appears in Cognac after roughly 10 years of maturing in oak casks, becoming more intense over the years.
The French believe it or not, aren’t actually all that fond of Cognac. They export almost 90% of their production.
There are six different wine-growing areas (crus) authorized to produce Cognac - in descending order of prestige: Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne, Borderies, Fins Bois, Bons Bois, and Bois Ordinaires.
Nine liters of white Wine must be distilled for a single liter of Cognac!
Laws concerning Cognac-making are strict as hell. Only three types of grapes may be used, and they can only be harvested in October; Cognac must be aged for at least two years in barrels made from French oak - and get this, from one of two specific forests! Then, the stills must be of a particular French shape (no, not the baguette shape); and we guess La Marseillaise has to be sung during the entire process.
