Eye: Deep bronze with mahogany reflections.

Nose: Sumptuous vanilla on the nose, reminiscent of bourbon or American oak. Warm spices accompany the sweeter touches, creating a mature impression. 

Palate: An instant mouthful of liquorice, nuts and rancio. Each flavor balances perfectly, slowly fading into a long finish marked by hints of walnut cake.

Description

Michel Forgeron Folle Blanche 2006 Cognac

This single vintage expression from the House of Michel Forgeron has been crafted entirely from the Folle Blanche grape variety, the traditional grape variety used in Cognac and Armagnac production until the 20th century. Its fragrant qualities and remarkable finesse make it a great choice to produce complex eaux-de-vie, although it’s a more vulnerable crop than modern varieties. Michel Forgeron Folle Blanche 2006 Cognac is a Premier Cru vintage that has undergone a completely natural maturation process for over a decade within French oak barrels, preserved deep down in the cave cellars at Michel Forgeron. It was bottled in 2019 and reduced to a strength of 47% ABV, creating an intense nose and full mouthfeel. You don’t often see vintages of this caliber at this price!

Michel Forgeron is a close-knit family-run business that values sustainability and an environmentally friendly approach to viticulture. 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.

Presentation of the Bottle

Presented in a stylish 50cl bottle and presentation case, this would be a wonderful gift for any Cognac lover. The distinct bottle shape - emblazoned with such a prominent vintage - is sure to stand out in any collection. 

How to Enjoy Michel Forgeron Folle Blanche 2006 Cognac

Complex and rich with notes of rancio, this Cognac is a perfect after-dinner treat. We suggest you enjoy it neat, in a slim tulip glass, alongside fine cheeses or dark chocolate-based desserts.

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.
