Eye: A rich golden color.

Nose: A spicy and woody nose that might suggest Scotch whisky.

Palate: The palate is true to the nose, full of spices, woody and remarkably round. Its almost peaty, toasted wood finish would bring us closer to a Lowlands whisky. Probably the most whisky of the Cognacs!

Description

Michel Forgeron Folle Blanche 2011 Cognac

Produced from the most prestigious of the Cognac production area, the Folle Blanche 2011 is a Grande Champagne masterpiece. Aged more than 8 years in French oak barrels, in the cellars of Domaine Michel Forgeron. It has been patiently reduced by adding distilled water to be offered at 47 degrees of alcohol. The final finish is a toasted wood finish, with a whisky-like essence.

One of the younger brands in the region, the first Michel Forgeron Cognac was released in 1977. Its young age hasn’t compromised its brilliance though. Instead, this house is pioneering eco-friendly practices. As the house is the first in the region to invest in solar energy in a board to create sustainable, responsible development. It is this perfected practice that creates the unique woody essence of the Folle Blanche 2011 Cognac.

Presentation of the bottle

Tradition and simplicity are at the heart of this Cognac display. Sepia tones and swirl type outline the contents with a nod to the house’s history. A classic wooden top finishes the display with effortless appeal. Representing its environmentally-friendly efforts, it portrays an earthy, clean feel. A wonderful Cognac to display.

How to enjoy

The rich fragrance of this Cognac deserves to be enjoyed neat. You might like to add a drop of water to entice the spicy and woody aromatic essence to the surface.

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.
