Frapin - Cognac grande Champagne 1888 - 750 ml
WHAT THE PRODUCERS ARE SAYING
Its highly complex aromas show notes of dried fruit, walnuts and hazelnuts, raisins and prune with candied orange and enchanting balsamic, roasted, toasty notes of cocoa and tonka beans and coffee. The heart is a sublime harmony of vine flowers with a splash of everlasting flowers mingling with the sweetness of linden on a background of pepper, sweet spice, summer flower honey and vanilla, leather and precious woods.
Frapin Cuvée 1888 honours company founder Piere Frapin, who in 1888 selected the cuvee that won a Gold Medal at the World Fair in Paris. Some of the cognacs used in the assemblage pre-date 1888, and a high proportion of the little-seen Folle Blanche grape is used. Presented in a crystal decanter with a spiral of gold thread and a 24-carat gold stopper, plus a gilded fob watch containing a block of Pierre Frapin perfume.
