Frapin has unveiled Millésime 1990 Cognac. Just 3,000 bottles of the limited-edition, 30-year-old French brandy have been produced.
Aged for 30 years on the brand’s estate in its humid cellars, the 1990 is the latest addition to the Millésime range, which was launched back in 1979 bottling. It is made using grapes from a 1990 harvest, on the brand’s 240-hectare Chez Pet vineyard in the heart of Grande Champagne.
A brilliant orange-yellow in color, the cognac offers delicate and refined aromas of candied orange and dried fig. The vintage is defined by a certain finesse and elegance with the palate offering more candied fruit and orange, followed by a touch of liquorice and cinnamon. Finally, notes of rancio and cigar box find their way through.
“This 30-year-old vintage is a truly exceptional Cognac,” noted cellarmaster Patric Pivetteau. “It is a result of a complex alchemy and embodies the Frapin style with its voluptuous aromatic richness and its infinitely long finish.”
Bottled at 41.8% ABV, Frapin Millésime 1990 Cognac is priced at £205 ($260 USD). For more information, head over to the brand’s official website.
