Michel Forgeron Folle Blanche 2005 Cognac
This single vintage expression from the House of Michel Forgeron has been crafted entirely from the Folle Blanche grape variety, which was once common for Cognac production due to its fragrant, floral quality. Michel Forgeron Folle Blanche 2005 Cognac is a Premier Cru vintage that has undergone a completely natural maturation process for well over a decade within French oak barrels, preserved deep down in the cave cellars at Michel Forgeron. It was bottled in 2019 at a significant strength of 47% ABV, perfectly emphasizing its rich notes of honey and dried fruits. Remarkable value for money.

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 and are conscious of protecting the terroirs from which they source their wines.

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.
