Eye: A deep golden amber color.

Nose: When poured, the nose is immediately attacked by sweet aromas of quince and fruit jelly, flawlessly followed by peaty notes. 

Palate: On the palate, the Cognac is very round, a surprisingly smooth drinking experience (given its high alcohol content) with a powerful and lasting finish.

Growth area & soil: Grande Champagne

Relive the 80s with Michel Forgeron’s 'Barrique' Collection

Forget Spandex and Springsteen, the true stars of the 80’s were the exquisite eaux-de-vie distilled into the Michel Forgeron Barrique 88 Cognac. Using high quality Ugni Blanc grapes harvested in the year 1988, this limited edition Cognac was produced at the Michel Forgeron vineyard located in Grande Champagne, the most prestigious region in Cognac production.

Aged for more than 30 years in traditional French oak barrels, this Cognac has been lovingly stored and preserved in the cellars of the Michel Forgeron Domaine, allowing it to naturally reach an alcohol content of 57%. What makes this Cognac so special is not only its provenance from one premier cru, but also its single vintage made exclusively with eaux-de-vie distilled in 1988.

A must-have product for any discerning Cognac drinker.

The Forgeron family firmly established their roots in the Grande Champagne region in 1909. Now ran by the fourth generation, two of the Forgeron brothers deal with the commercial and agricultural sides of the business respectively. The vineyard itself stretches across 24 hectares, growing mostly Ugni-Blanc grapes for their production of top-of-the-range eaux-de-vie. Visually the deep amber color and golden hue of the Cognac is a perfect representation of the luxurious and unique product stored within.

A fine and limited edition vintage, blended and stored in the noble Grande Champagne region at the distinguished and highly reputable Michel Forgeron vineyards.

This Cognac is perfect to share amongst friends, perhaps to celebrate an anniversary or the birthday of someone born in 1988. Its high quality and noble provenance are a great talking point at any dinner party.

How to Drink

Enjoy neat or with a drop of water, sip slowly to fully appreciate the complex palate and sweet aromas from this ‘88 vintage and limited edition Cognac.

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.
