"Frapin Cellar Master Edition No. 1 has been bottled at cask strength to retain its robust and smooth character; it bears the seal of our quest for authentic cognacs." Patrice Piveteau, Cellar Master at Frapin
Edition No. 1 is a single cask, specially selected by our cellar master, Patrice Piveteau, for its distinctive character. After leaving the blend to age in Limousin oak for over 10 years in our "chai Francois Rabelais" - typically a humid cellar that brings roundness and suppleness to the blend - he has then decided to release this cognac under natural strength, using no filtration nor chilling.
Appearance - deep golden color with warm amber-colored hues
Aroma - both clean and aromatic, first revealing oak and vanilla reminiscent from early ageing in new oak, then floral features dominate and evolve into fruity flavors with apricot, citrus, ripened plums and spices
Palate - balanced, lively, with a fresh attack, followed by warm amplitude and inimitable roundness, with apricot and ginger reminiscing on the back palate
Finish - long, typical of Frapin cognacs
