Courvoisier VSOP or VS
does anyone know if Courvoisier VSOP or VS cognac bears a reliable hashgacha?
With brandy the hechsher would have to be on the bottle, so you can just check it directly. Certainly the normal Courvoisier, with no hechsher on the bottle, is 100% treif.
Louis Royer has VS, VSOP & XO all with good hashgacha. The Cognac must come from the region of Cognac. Otherwise it is Brandy. Certainly it can be good brandy, but it is not Cognac. The same applies to Champagne. Yes there are other sparkling wines produced with the method of Champagne, but there are no Champagne. By the way, prosecco is not produced using the Champagne method.
