Michel Forgeron Folle Blanche 2012 Cognac
Produced with eaux-de-vie from the finest region of the Cognac, Grande Champagne, the Folle Blanche 2012 is a selection of excellent quality. Aged for 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. Fruitier than the Ugni Blanc that is the majority of Cognacs, the fresh white fruit and spicy finish of this palate is a delicious display of brilliance.
Originating in 1977, Michel Forgeron Cognac is one of the younger brands in the region. Its youthfulness 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. The Folle Blanche 2012 Cognac is an excellent example of what these considered practices can offer.

How to enjoy
The spicy finish suits enjoyment as an aperitif or digestive.
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.
