Owned by Francis Abécassis, ABK6 is a young cognac house based at the Domaine de Chez Maillard near the village of Claix. Its 250 hectares of vineyards produce high quality eaux-de-vie, which are used to blend this contemporary cognac. The goal of this label is to introduce a young and modern spirit to the traditional drink and at the same time value the quality. Not only its name, an abbreviation of the owner’s name. ABK6’s domain, sits in the heart of its 90 hectares of vineyards on an exceptional chalky hilltop location. The father and daughter that run this house proudly make exclusively single estate cognac which is grown, distilled, aged, blended and bottled at here.
Clear, light golden with bright gold highlights. Clean and fruity with pronounced grape-like qualities and pineapple macerated in clove syrup. Refreshingly light and easy fruity cognac rejoicing in a lack of heavy oak which is replaced by nubuck and light spice. Light spice with honeyed sweetness and balsamwood. Delightfully youthful and fresh.
