Description

Limited Edition 'Barrique' Collection - A Forgeron Millésime from 1996

The best thing to come out of this era has to be the exquisite eaux-de-vie distilled into the Michel Forgeron Barrique 96 Cognac. Using high-quality Ugni Blanc grapes harvested in the year 1996, this limited edition Cognac was produced at the Michel Forgeron vineyard located in Grande Champagne, the most prestigious region in Cognac production.

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 1996. This high-end blend has spent almost 25 years in traditional French oak barrels. A must-have product for any discerning Cognac drinker. For a smooth yet flavorsome drinking experience, the expert blenders at Michel Forgeron have reduced the alcohol content of this limited edition to 47% by adding distilled water, this means the Cognac retains the most acute tastes, aromas, and intense flavors.

A particularly high-quality vintage like this should be saved for a special occasion, perhaps to celebrate an anniversary or a birthday of someone born in this legendary year.

The Forgeron family firmly established their roots in the Grande Champagne region in 1909. Now run 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.

How to Serve

Enjoy neat or over ice, leaving the Cognac to air for a few seconds before taking in its sweet and intense aromas.

About Michel Forgeron Cognac

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.
