Frontalier US stock Tax implications

Question regarding exercising options and capital gains.

I work, via a Swiss entity, for an american company. Options have been issued. I understand that in Switzerland, what you spend to buy the options is taxed as income. However, future capital gains are not taxed. Would any one know if this applies to me living in france and working as a frontalier?

France charges capital gains as income, however if 90% of your earnings are from CH then you don't have a further liability in France.
I suspect you will be liable to French tax & social costs, possibly on your entire earnings that year in France assuming the options are for a US stock.
