Description

Back to the 90s, Michel Forgeron’s Limited Edition “Barrique” Collection

Michel Forgeron Barrique 99 is arguably the best thing to come out of the year that marked the end of the 20th century. Using only the highest quality Ugni Blanc grapes harvested in the year 1999, this limited edition Cognac was produced at the Michel Forgeron vineyard located in Grande Champagne, the most prestigious terroir for Cognac production. 

What makes this Cognac so special is not only its provenance from one region, the premier cru - but also its single vintage made exclusively with eaux-de-vie distilled in 1999. This limited edition high-end blend has spent more than 20 years in traditional French oak barrels. A must-have product for the most discerning Cognac connoisseur.

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.

This stunning single vintage boasts toasted notes with the sweet warming aromas of cocoa, toffee and cinnamon. On the palate, its 20-year-age marks its presence with a strong, full-bodied structure that's dominated by the woody flavors of oak.

How to Serve

Enjoy neat or over ice, leaving the Cognac to air for a few seconds before taking in its sweet and subtle notes. This easy-to-drink Cognac can be drank as a delectable digestif thanks to its sweet, warming wintery aromas of cocoa and cinnamon. It pairs particularly well with a cheese course, the earthy, woody tones on the palate will complement a creamy Compté or Sainte-Maure goats cheese.

Presentation of the Bottle:

Slim, elegant and with a typical ‘Forgeron’ shape, this bottle is both old fashioned yet modern, traditional yet timeless, its visible cork is a reminder of the artisanal craftsmanship that has been applied by the Forgeron master blenders. The bottle also comes with a stunning presentation box for gifting or storage purposes.

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.
