Description

Michel Forgeron Vieille Réserve Grande Champagne Cognac

The Michel Forgeron Vieille Réserve Grande Champagne is a blend of eaux-de-vie that have each been aged for at least 30 years. Allowed to naturally increase in alcohol, it's a slightly over-proof offering at 45%. It's a powerful Cognac, yet well rounded and complex. Standing proud as an extremely aromatic blend, it also reveals great rancio, as one would expect from such an old reserve.

This Grande Champagne blend offers exceptional value for money for such quality. And they've kept the packaging traditionally simple, with a classic shaped bottle and label, it presents itself as a generous Cognac to own or to give as a gift. If you've yet to discoer Michel Forgeron's Cognac's, then this would be the perfect introduction to the Cognac house’s range.

Sustainability is at the core of this close-knit family-run business, as the sons of Michel Forgeron; Pierre and Christophe excel in embracing the original roots and traditions of the family brand. Meanwhile, they continue to invest in responsible development, opting for a sustainable approach to the viticulture that, of course, takes place on their land within the Grande Champagne region.

Presentation of the bottle

Presentation is very important to the house of Michel Forgeron and Vieille Réserve Grande Champagne Cognac is no exception. The bottle is of a traditional Cognacaise style, with a classic vintage design on the label alongside the Forgeron branding.

How to enjoy

Serve neat to enjoy its lingering length, as the persistence of its aromas on the taste buds will prolong the pleasure of tasting in a velvety and delicate rancio. Pair with a fine cigar of your choice to elongate the pleasurable experience even further.

About Michel Forgeron

Michel Forgeron Cognac’s uniqueness lies in its very special history, its environmental concern and of course in its quest for quality. With a relatively young history, the first cognac under the brand Michel Forgeron was produced in 1977. Their philosophy remains the same as his grandfather’s, who bought the agricultural property at the turn of the century: work better, produce better. Recently, for its hundred year anniversary, Forgeron covered one of the estate’s roofs with solar panels in order to work with sustainable energies for the cognac production.
