Description

Claude Thorin Vintage 1996 Folle Blanche Cognac is somewhat special...  Made with Folle Blanche grapes - the old grape that used to be the mainstay of the vineyards of Cognac until the phylloxera crisis of the 1880s.  As the name suggests, this is a cognac from the year 1996.

According to Claude Thorin, this cognac excites on the nose with fabulous aromas of violet, honeysuckle, and vanilla. On the palate one enjoys a round, supple flavour before moving onto a long aftertaste with notes of fleshy white fruits and spices.  

Offering extraordinary value for money for a vintage cognac, this one certainly deserves a place in your cabinet.
