Eye: 

Bright orange tone.

Nose: 

A balanced blend of refined fragrances. Candied fruits (orange and apricot) and fine notes of honey and spices. Light woody notes linger with Rancio character that is typical of the Grande Champagne region.

Palate: 

An exceptional elegance courtesy of ageing in dry cellars. Initial sweetness with notes of candied fruit, honey and gingerbread. An impressively long finish thanks to its Grande Champagne origins and process of distilling over lees.

Description

Frapin Millesime 1991 Tresor Du Chateau Cognac

A Vintage cognac with enticing rarity, the Millesime 1991 is the last of the limited edition Tresor du Chateau (tresor of the house/castle). Made with eaux-de-vie from the finest region of the Cognac, Grande Champagne, it has been distilled over lees enticing from the first impression. Ending with a memorable finish, it has been aged for over 20 years in oak barrels offering a fine taste of favourable rancio that is harmonised with delectable sweetness. A long finish enables the last addition to offer a memorable close to the Frapin limited edition chapter.

As quoted by the Frapin house, “the Millésime 1991 speaks as much of the elegant patina of a “20 ans d’âge” as the unique ability of a cognac to magnify the intimacy of shared moments.” With expertise dating back to the 1200s and ownership of over 300 hectares in the finest region of the Cognac; Grande Champagne the elegance of each Frapin creation is simply unmistakable. Representing the house's class with remarkable ease, the Millésime 1991 expresses expertise from its origins, through to its final touch.

About Frapin Cognac

The Frapin family has been around the Southwest of France since 1270. Always active in the domain of winegrowing, they specialized in distillation much later on and have since continued to stand strong throughout twenty one generations! The estate owns 340 hectares of land entirely in the Grande Champagne area, of which 240 are planted with vines. Frapin’s home in the beautiful castle Fontpinot in the town of Segonzac. The most famous family member was the 16th century author Francois Rabelais, after whom a prestigious Frapin Cognac bottle is named: The Cuvee Rabelais, rather fittingly, the house of Frapin is also the only Cognac estate granted permission to call itself a Chateau within the entire Grande Champagne cru. Alongside many other accolades, Frapin was the first Cognac producer to invent a multi-vintage blend, combining vintages of different years to create the perfect taste.
