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