Claude Thorin K&L Exclusive VS Grande Champagne Cognac (750ml)

SKU #1170909

We are going to sell so much Claude Thorin Cognac at K&L this year that we expect it to be a household name with our customer base. Brandy drinkers searching for Grande Champagne quality at reasonable prices are going to be thrilled because there's nothing this good for this price on the American market -- and that's because we're buying directly from the estate. All of the new-make brandy from Claude Thorin goes into new Limousin oak for the first twelve months before being transferred into used russet barrels. The VS is fresh, clean, and fruit-driven, mimicking the best $40 options of Grande Champagne but for $10 less. It's just good, honest brandy from a French farmer, but when you see the price tag, your eyes jump will out of your head. Grower-producer Cognac for $29.99 -- it's about time that our French brandy program caught up to our Champagne department. With that analogy in mind, Claude Thorin is the Frank Bonville of Cognac.

When it comes to Cognac value, I'm not sure how much better we can do than this VS from Thorin. Any less expensive and our customers would wonder what was wrong with it! But make no mistake: this is all pure Grande Champagne fruit, distilled with finesse by Mr. Thorin. Ten years from now I'm not sure we'll be able to sell anything else besides his stuff. We're going to spoil people with this Cognac.

This is just silly. There's absolutely no reason that we should be able to sell this quality of Cognac for such an outrageous price. Their VS quality is all about finesse and elegance. Aromatics are on the fruit and fresh flowers with a lovely fresh vanilla bean that pulls it all together. When compared to other Cognacs in the price range there's absolutely no comparison. You're getting small producer Grand Champagne Cognac painstakingly made by hand for less than $30.

Additional Information:





- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
