High Quality without the High Price Tag: Aldi’s Chevalier VS Cognac
Aldi has been making waves in the headlines of the British press with its award-winning own-brand spirits. Their Chevalier VS Cognac has won a host of awards, scooping the same prizes as bottles priced at over $200.
A lively and aromatic Cognac, with classic flavors, aged for a minimum of two years in France. This Cognac has won countless Silver awards thanks to its delightful dry, fruity flavors. Aged in classic oak casks just like its more established, higher-priced competitors, this Cognac releases some truly smooth and wonderful aromas.
The carefully selected eaux-de-vie produce a mellow and easy drinking experience, which has married marvelously with the woody tones produced by the minimum 2-year aging process of the Cognac.
The robust finish only affirms its superior quality, it’s no wonder it held up against some of the biggest names in the market when blind tested at the International Wine and Spirits Competition.
