Millésime 1992 - Cognac Frapin, 26 years old
An expression of centuries-old know-how, the 1992 vintage completes the collection of rare cognacs of the Frapin House. A rich aromatic palette and an intense length on the palate give it that special aura, that of exceptional cognacs.
Distilled on the lees and then aged in sealed barrels in the attics of the "Marie Frapin" cellar of the family estate, this XO vintage cognac has offered "its share to the angels" for 26 years. This slow evaporation has chiseled its aromatic complexity and elegance.
The color is brilliant and silky, the nose fine and generous. It reveals fragrances of prune and licorice. Elegant and refined, the bouquet develops subtle notes, delicate and floral variations, soon ample and fruity, supported by a cheerful note of orange. The cognac unfolds, very long in the mouth.

Established in the Charente region since 1270, the Frapin family is a family of winegrowers and distillers for 21 generations. The Grande Champagne region, Premier Cru of Cognac, has become their homeland. With its exceptional vineyards covering more than 240 hectares, the Frapin family passionately embodies the alliance of ancestral know-how and century-old methods. All its cognacs are harvested, distilled and aged on the estate. In 2008, their "Multimillésime n°1 Frapin" was elected "Best Spirit in the World" at the International Spirits Challenge (ISC) in London. A first for a cognac!
Cognac Frapin has been awarded the Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant (EPV) label. The EPV label is a mark of recognition by the State set up to distinguish French companies with excellent craft and industrial know-how. Only 3 Cognac houses have been awarded the label to date.
