Last April 18th 2024 was launched the 4th edition of the ABK6 Cognac Artist Collection by the Domaine Abécassis. Pursuing a real success through a collaboration with various artists, that either pleased epicureans and Cognac enthusiasts (photo credits: Domaine Abecassis).

Still developed in the Chez Maillard estate in Claix, last Thursday, April 18 2024, this Artist Collection edition was born at the initiative of Francis Abécassis in 2019 in order to celebrate a connection between the very suitable and colorful universes of Art and Cognac. By AL

..around the Charente region and its treasures.
This Artist collection by ABK6 gathers a genuine reflexion..

Indeed, at this occasion, the artworks of the various artists, that already collaborated to this inspired project, are temporarily exhibited throughout those cellars for a certain period. A good occasion to better know the laureate of this year Audrey Sedano, along the distinct universes from the other applicants of this year Léo Alcaraz and Mathilde Combot.  
For instance, a creation of the artist Audrey Sedano was chosen by the ABK6 founder Francis Abécassis, to illustrate this new edition of this Artist Collection. A limited-edition collection is naturally issued for the “first arrived first served”

..thus, offering a creative interpretation of the ABK6 spirit and its Single Estate Cognac
Each year, since 2019, this unique collection honors a local artist.. 

Thus, this realization illustrates in a certain way the wish of authenticity and modernity of ABK6 Cognacs. By the way, this collection offers a unique and full sensory experience, where your tasting moment may be decorated with colors. In fact, each edition of this Artist Collection tells its own and unique story, embodied in a true delight. In this case, ABK6 wishes to display the artistic inspiration of Audrey Sedano, around the heritage of Charente, with this Réserve Cognac, where the illustrious Vaisseau Moebius is reinterpreted as a comic strip echo of the emblematic building, from the city of Angoulême.  

..standing between comics, gastronomy and animation.
This bottle is a summary of the richness of the region.. 

Therefore the Cognac ABK6‘s typography is unveiled as a pattern, referring to the art of calligraphy, used in the cellars on Cognac barrels. Thereafter, the surrounding colors somehow symbolize this plural territory, from the blue water of the Charente river, until the green shades of the overall vineyards, passing by the honey dress from any random Cognac juice.  Without forgetting a mixture of linocut for an anchor in tradition and craftsmanship (reference to the papermaking past of Angoulême), and even some digital creation, reference to the resolutely modern times of this so-called Cité des Valois.


..this Cognac holds the Crus de Petite Champagne and Fins Bois
Aging in new barrels for 6 to 8 months, then passing many years into red and old barrels..  
Audrey Sedano is either a visual artist, illustrator and comic book author. She founded Editions du Petit Saturnin, publisher of sound comics and art books between Angoulême and Paris. Therefore, she directs the Patrimoine Augmenté‘s art studio, dedicated to promote some French heritage and is represented by the Showroom57 art gallery, in Angoulême.
This Cognac was cultivated in situ, via alcoholic and malolactic fermentation, in thermoregulated stainless steel vats, before a double distillation on lees, in typical Charentais copper stills of 16 and 25HL. Still only composed of Ugni-Blanc grape variety, from average age of vines of 40 years

This limited-edition Cognac contains a ABK6 Reserve cuvée, displaying an elegant nose reveals a beautiful and fruity balance, ranging from fresh seasonal fruits until the fragrances of candied fruits. Then, a palate gets unveiled with supple and generous aromas of vanilla and a woody aromatic persistence, enhanced with a spicy finish.

This ABK6 Artist‘s 4th edition would be available in May 2024 at the recommended price of 78 euros (70cl and 40% vol.). More details on their official website.
