Top 10 Prestige Cognacs

Cognac Frapin's Cuvee 1888 presents hints of soft spices and a surprising floral aroma

Cognac Frapin Cuvée 1888

Origin:
Grande Champagne, France

Price: $5,750

On one of the further-flung branches of its sprawling family tree, the Frapin clan claims 16th century comic author François Rabelais, well-known both for 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.
