It is shown that the ensemble $\{p (\alpha),|\alpha>|\alpha^*>\}$ where $p (\alpha)$ is a Gaussian distribution of finite variance and $| \alpha>$ is a coherent state can be better discriminated with an entangled measurement than with any local strategy supplemented by classical communication. Although this ensemble consists of products of quasi-classical states, it exhibits some quantum nonlocality. This remarkable effect is demonstrated experimentally by implementing the optimal local strategy together with a joint nonlocal strategy that yields a higher fidelity.
