1888 Vintage the
secret of the rarest elixirs
exceptional carafe, a jewel of crystal preserving the secret of a rare
vintage. The assemblage of this ‘Cuvée 1888’ is from Cognacs
ageing in our ‘Paradise’ storehouse.
Some of these Cognacs are even older than 1888. They have aged for so many
generations and are a testimony to the mastery of the late and great
Monsieur Pierre Frapin.
Offered in a limited series of 1888 bottles, the carafe-type bottle was
inspired as a homage to Pierre Frapin. In 1888, with a vineyard
successfully rejuvenated, he prepared his participation at the Universal
Exhibition, for which Gustave Eiffel had just completed his famous tower.
Pierre Frapin selected some of his ‘cuvées’ and received the
Gold Medal at this famous exhibition. This Gold Medal is still on display
and preciously so, in the Eiffel Storehouse of our Château.

The heart of its character is a sublime harmony of vineyard flowers, a
flash of sents of the lime tree, pepper, soft spices, white honey, vanilla,
leather, and tropical woods.
Astonishing Crystal carafe
this historic Cuvée, Frapin Cognac has commissioned the design of
an original carafe of elegant and pure form. Produced by the Cristalleries
Royales de Champagne, the carafe is decorated by a 24 carat golden line.
Its spiral shape recalls Cognac’s slow ageing through time or the
preparatory turning of cognac in a glass. The Etains d’Anjou created
this golden line as also they did the golden cork.
