Michel Forgeron Cognac

The Michel Forgeron Hors d'Age Grande Champagne cognac is a truly exceptional blend of premier terroir eaux-de-vie.  Aged for over four decades deep within the house's cellars, it was allowed to naturally reach 50 ° of alcohol content.

The tasting experience is sublime.  Beginning with violet tones on the nose, soon a myriad of other aromas explode the senses.  Powerful, elegant, spicy, and of course, there's a wonderful rancio that only occurs in cognacs that are truly well aged.  The finish certainly doesn't disappoint - truly long, velvety, and delicate.  This is a cognac to savor - and it can hold its own in the smartest of company.

Q&A for Michel Forgeron Hors d'Age Grande Champagne

Alice 2012-07-28

The delicacy of the aromas appears from the first moments with very present Violette aromas followed by the power of sweet spices: licorice, Pain d'Epices, Cinnamon, Orange candied, Sandalwood.The Cognac blooms little by little to aim towards the balsamic smell of the incense paper and the sweetness of a smoking Cocoa.Powerful, elegant, almost peppered.Its length, the obstinacy of the aromas on papillae prolong for a long time the pleasure of the tasting in a velvety and delicate rancio.
