Frapin Millésime 1990 is a highly limited edition with only 3,000 bottles available. This remarkable expression, boasting an ABV of 41.8%, is described as elegant and taut, displaying a supple and bright appearance. Crafted using grapes harvested in 1990 from Frapin’s expansive Chez Pet vineyard, spanning 240 hectares, this Cognac offers a sensory experience like no other.
“This 30-year-old vintage is a truly exceptional Cognac. It is a result of complex alchemy and embodies the Frapin style with its voluptuous aromatic richness and its infinitely long finish,”said cellarmaster Patric Pivetteau.
The painstaking process involved aging the Cognac for three decades in the brand’s humid cellars on their estate. Frapin Millésime 1990 now joins the esteemed Millésime range, which was introduced 24 years ago with a remarkable 1979 bottling.
On the nose, this vintage Cognac delights with aromas of candied fruit, dried figs, and nuances of orange.

Importer Louis Latour Agencies is offering this extraordinary Cognac for a recommended retail price (RRP) of £205 (US$261), making it an enticing proposition for enthusiasts and collectors alike.
