Frapin N°7 Cognac Serie Multimillésime - 3 Vintages, 100% Grande Champagne
A stunning trifecta of Cognac Vintage magic, the Frapin Multimillésime Serie N°7 Cognac is a combination of three vintages selected for their aromatic potential and characteristics that blend so wonderfully together: from the years 1989, 1991 and 1993.
Forming part of the “Trésors du Château” collection, this is a one of a kind example of alchemy. The Frapin Cellar Master, Patrice Piveteau calls this “A sensorial trio that continues the quest of excellence initiated in 2008…”
All three of the Vintages selected for this Frapin Serie No.7 are derived from a single estate in the highly esteemed Grande Champagne terroir, renowned for its finesse when it comes to producing eaux-de-vie.
- The 1989 Vintage gives this Cognac structure, with a seductive nose of floral and fruity notes such as iris and quince jam. On the palate, the notes are woody and gorgeous vanilla.
- The 1991 Vintage ultimately gifts this Cognac with finesse and subtlety. Aromatic accents include orange, apricot candied fruits, honey and spices.
- The 1993 Vintage charges this Cognac with strength. The aromas of citrus are followed by apricot along with delicate woody notes. On the palate, it is particularly powerful. Discover notes of dried fruit, hazelnut and honey - alongside the famous rancio for which the Premier Cru is particularly celebrated.
The high chalk content in the soil is down to millions of years of fossilization; unique to this small Cognac cru. The chalk combined with the optimum amount of sunlight exposure, and the rolling vineyards that span the area makes for light, fine and floral eaux-de-vie with a lengthy finish.
Frapin have come to embody the essence of excellent Cognac production. Their estate, which today emcompasses 240 hectares of vineyards, can be found in the Premier Cru, the Grande Champagne. They can trace their history all the way back to 1270, and have passed down years of savoir-faire to be where they are now. 21 generations later, and their hand-crafted single estate Cognacs are world-famous.
How to enjoy a Frapin Multimillésime Cognac

A sip of wine for the last day of 2020 starts with the pleasure of this cognac.
I owned a bottle of Frapin Multimillésime No2 a few years ago and when I opened the bottle and drank it my impressions have remained fresh and very vivid.
This time, I opened the Frapin Multimillésime No7 again with anticipation, and the aromas that first came out of the bottle made my saliva stick.
The aromas are complex and refined, prominent on the nose and palate, initially floral on the nose, before being replaced by lemon notes. This is then followed by fuller, more savoury aromas of fresh orange, ripe plum and other fruits.
Half an hour after waking, take a sip and layers of candied fruit, apricot, orange and rich vanilla emerge, with leather and barrel notes remaining to swirl in the mouth, the complexity is outstanding, the flavours subtle and persistent.
The finish is very persistent, good cognac.

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 generations! The estate owns 300 hectares of land entirely in the Grande Champagne area, of which 200 are planted with vines. Frapin’s home in the beautiful caste 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. Like some other cognac houses, Frapin needs to extend business through diversifying into other luxury products such as chocolate or coffee. Frapin was the first cognac producer to invent a multi-vintage blend, combining vintages of different years to create the perfect taste.
