Frapin 1992 Millesime 26 Year Old Grande Champagne Cognac 70cl / 40.5%
This bottle was kindly donated by Louis Latour Agencies for The Cream Of The Crop Charity Auction in aid of The Drinks Trust to support drinks industry employees.
The Millésime 1992 single cask Frapin Cognac is a testament to an exceptional vintage, a long hot dry summer resulting in perfect conditions for ripening of the grapes, offering an ideal juice for fermenting. Once double distilled, it is left in oak casks to develop and mature in the dark, damp cellars. Over 26 years, this results in a high proportion of evaporation or ‘angel’s share’, enhancing the flavour characteristics and producing something truly spectacular.
From the onset, the nose is rich and giving with zesty citrus fruit and tangerine aromas, a touch of spice, dried peach and gingerbread. The palate is generous, with highly concentrated fruit flavours, dried apricot and orange. The finish is memorable, having a hint of nutmeg, vanilla and a lingering rich raisined-fruit that never ends.
