There’s big news at the house of Cognac Frapin. They have just released the latest new cognac in their Multimillesime range – the Multimillesime No. 6. And they inaugurated a new location for their cellars – the treasure chest where the eau-de-vie gets aged.
As the name suggests, this is the sixth expression in the series, and it’s been created using Grande Champagne vintage cognacs from the years 1986, 1988, and 1991. We’ve not yet had a chance to taste this limited edition, but according to Frapin and Cellar Master, Patrice Piveteau, the cognac begins with ‘finesse and subtlety.’ Each individual cognac that makes up the blend adds its own character – with the 1986 having floral notes combined with grapefruit and fig. The 1988 brings with it structure and the 1991 offers ‘finesse and delicacy, with candied fruit, orange, apricot, honey and spices’.
In line with the previous cognacs in the series, Frapin Multimillesime No. 6 Cognac will be a strictly limited edition of only 1.270 bottles. It’s presented in a classic style cognac bottle and housed in a wooden presentation box.
Louis Latour Agencies is the distributor in the UK and the cognac will retail at £210 UK pounds (approx $320 US dollars).
Here are some images of the recent inauguration of Frapin’s new location for aging their eau-de-vie. Needless to say, this is one of the most treasured places for any Cognac house.
