Description

Claude Thorin Extra Grande Champagne

A jewel of the Premier Cru, Claude Thorin Extra Grande Champagne epitomizes the true essence of well made Cognac. Superior in quality, the eaux-de-vie that form this expertly curated Cognac, are aged for an average of 30 years. Blending some of the oldest eaux-de-vie of Maison Thorin, Extra offers complex aromas and an intense rancio. With a zesty punch, this Grande Champagne blend is brought to life through notes of crystallised fruits, orange, dried fruits, tobacco, and spices. Developing with exceptional length in the mouth, it is a Cognac with remarkable suppleness. An all-round exceptional Cognac boasting from a brand boasting quality, expertise and decades of savoir-faire.

Following in the footsteps of his father Andre, today, Claude Thorin heads the house of Thorin. With humble roots in the prestigious Grande Champagne terroir, Maison Thorin continuously strives in the quest for perfection. With some of the best quality eaux-de-vie at their feet, the cellar-masters of the Thorin estate pass on their passion and world of artisanal knowledge, generation after generation. Through the intricate and patient processes of grape cultivation, distillation, blending and aging, the house of Claude Thorin flourish in creating an unrivalled range of Cognacs and Pineaux de Charentes year after year.

Presentation of the bottle

Easy on the eye, Claude Thorin Extra Cognac arrives in a heavy based carafe which oozes opulence. The label is imprinted with golden swirly typography, offering an air of luxury to the presentation. Splendour is even further exemplified by the shimmering bronze reflections of the rich nectar inside. To top it all off, a glistening golden bottle stopper, means this Extra Cognac should be preserved for tastings in celebration of extra special occasions.

How to enjoy

Claude Thorin Extra is best enjoyed neat or on the rocks. A well matured Cognac like this one, should be appreciated in its entirety, so it may be deemed a waste to mix it with other components of a cocktail for example. We recommend leaving this Extra Cognac to sit in a tulip glass for around 8-10 minutes before you begin the tasting. This allows the aromas to develop nicely. Drink it cold as an aperitif, or without ice, at room temperature following an indulgent meal.
