Best Prestige Cognacs
On one of the further-flung branches of its sprawling family tree, the Frapin clan claims 16th century comic author François Rabelais, known for both his prodigious wit and equally prodigious intake of spirits.
That author’s sense of adventure and his appreciation of a good Cognac are still present in Frapin family products. The Cuvée 1888 provides the finest example of the house’s ability to mix centuries-old craft with the natural abundance of France’s Grande Champagne region. A mixture of several vintages, some predating its 1888 moniker, the Cuvée 1888 presents hints of soft spices and a surprising floral aroma.
