Eye: Light copper. 

Nose: Begins with finesse and subtlety, slowly intertwining floral, fruity notes of fig and grapefruit combined with some more structural, woody characters.

Palate: Exotic, aromatic fruitiness, developing into more spicy and sweet notes of vanilla, liquorice and nutty Charentais rancio.

Description

Frapin Multimillésime No. 6 Cognac: a Layered Experience

Frapin Multimillésime No. 6 is, as the name suggests, the sixth expression in this exceptional series combining some of the finest vintages from the House of Frapin. This multifaceted expression has been created using Grande Champagne vintages from the years 1986, 1988 and 1991, resulting in a layered tasting experience. As any connoisseur knows, the art of Cognac lies in the blending; very few releases demonstrate this better than this limited edition Multimillésime.

Initially a family of winegrowers, the Frapin family have been settled in southwest France since the 13th Century. After taking up the craft of distillation, they have kept up production of eaux-de-vie for a staggering 20 generations, and the current head of the company is a direct descendant of the founder. The family’s established headquarters is at the charming Château de Fontpinot, nestled among their vineyards in the heart of Grande Champagne. 

Today, Frapin Cognacs are entirely harvested, distilled and aged at the Domaine and the family are fiercely proud of their single-estate status. The House of Frapin control every aspect of production and eschew scientific methods, instead relying on age-old traditions - as well as the extraordinary palate of their Cellar Master.

Awards

Frapin Multimillésime No. 6 received the acclaimed award World's Best Cognac 2016 at the World Cognac Awards.

Presentation of the bottle

Only 1,270 numbered bottles have been produced, each packaged in the house's distinctive, classically styled bottle – a design based on an ancient Cognac flagon – with a neck hemmed with cord and presented in a wooden gift box.

How to Enjoy Frapin Multimillésime No. 6 Cognac

Certainly a great Cognac to add to your collection, this release makes a wonderful digestif to serve after a luxurious dinner. Best enjoyed neat at around 20°C (68°F) in a slim tulip glass.

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.
