Frapin unveils 1270 Cognac
As consumers experiment more with Cognac, Frapin has developed an expression ideally suited to mixing occasions.
Single-estate Cognac brand Frapin is simultaneously paying homage to its extensive history and looking to the future with the launch of its latest innovation: 1270.
Named after the year the Frapin family began winemaking in southwest France, the expression offers a snapshot of the Cognac house’s 240-hectare vineyard in Grande Champagne, where it sources all the Ugni-Blanc grapes used to create Frapin Cognac.
The Frapin estate is renowned for its crumbly and chalky soil that is identical to that in Reims.
Frapin 1270 is created in the same way as all Frapin Cognacs – by distilling fine lees and then leaving for an extended maturation period in oak barrels in humid or dry cellars. The entire production process takes place on Frapin’s estate and is overseen by cellar master Patrice Piveteau.
More than just a classic-style Cognac, Frapin 1270 is particularly rounded and fruity, meaning it is well suited to apéritifs and long drinks for at-home consumption, and is also the ideal cocktail companion for bartenders and mixologists.
The Cognac has a nose of vine and lime blossom with a hint of vanilla, leading to a harmonious, fresh and original palate. It is presented in a smart, broad-shouldered bottle to attract today’s discerning modern drinker.
