Michel Forgeron Barrique 2.0 Cognac
The latest from maison Michel Forgeron’s "Barriques" Collection, Cognac Forgeron Barrique 2.0 is produced exclusively from premier cru, Grande Champagne eaux-de-vie. Therefore, it positions itself as one of the most sought-after and prestigious Cognacs on the market. Aged for 20 years in French oak barrels in the Domaine Michel Forgeron cellars and patiently reduced by adding distilled water, it is offered at 47 degrees of alcohol, a good compromise between preservation of taste, aromas and power on the palate.
Michel and Francine Forgeron have been passionately developing, since 1965, refined, authentic products of exceptional quality. Today the Cognac house is anchored by its younger generations as Pierre and Christophe have taken the brand in the direction of modern and environmentally conscious standards, favoring sustainable viticulture and renewable energy.
Presentation of the bottle
Presented in the classic Michel Forgeron decanter, this Cognac displays smooth curves and a cylinder shape. Its traditional style label and typography are symbolic of the brand and this Cognac's extensive history and roots.
How to enjoy
Such a well-matured Cognac deserves to be tasted in its purest form, which means – neat, at room temperature. By serving from a tulip glass, you'll get the fullest tasting experience as the narrow neck of this type of glass allows the aromas to evolve evenly. Pair with a fine cigar of your choice to prolong the tasting 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.
