    I have an unopened bottle of the Berry Bros bottling of 1940 Frapin Grande Champagne Cognac bottled and shipped in 1976. The previous bottle of this was beautifully elegant. Not at all like the blockbuster 40 year old blended Frapin that Berry’s used to sell. Not sure whether to sell or drink. What would it be worth now?
