Frapin Cuvée 1888 Cognac

Frapin Cognac

Cuvée Cognac Frapin 1888 is a prestige product. The crystal carafe has 700 ml of finest cognac to offer. This Cuvée from the house of Frapin is part of a limited edition (1888 bottles), and a major reference to Pierre Frapin. In 1889, Pierre won the Gold Medal of the Exposition Universelle de Paris 1889, today the medal is kept in the cellars of the estate in Segonzac. This bottle unites very old Grande Champagne (très vieille) eaux-de-vie from the barrels of the Domaine Château de Fontpinot. The Cuvée consists of Folle Blanche notes which seem to be quite rare to find. The decanter is unique: Frapin created a bottle, crafted by the Christalleries Royales de Champagne, including a 24 carat gold element.

Tasting Notes

Frapins precious Cuvée is a complex, intense Cognac - on the nose some dry fruits, orange and a hint of nuts. On the palate: A balance between flowers, some citrus, vanilla and notes of exotic wood

The Frapin family has been around the Southwest of France since 1270. Always active in the domain of winegrowing, they specialized in distillation much later on and have since continued to stand strong throughout twenty generations! The estate owns 300 hectares of land entirely in the Grande Champagne area, of which 200 are planted with vines. Frapin’s home in the beautiful caste Fontpinot in the town of Segonzac. The most famous family member was the 16th century author Francois Rabelais, after whom a prestigious Frapin cognac bottle is named: The Cuvee Rabelais. Like some other cognac houses, Frapin needs to extend business through diversifying into other luxury products such as chocolate or coffee. Frapin was the first cognac producer to invent a multi-vintage blend, combining vintages of different years to create the perfect taste.
