Michel Forgeron VSOP Cognac

Michel Forgeron Cognac

The Michel Forgeron VSOP has been created from a number of vintage eaux-de-vies from between the years of 1998-2003.  Each has been allowed to naturally age and increase in volume, ending up with a cognac that's 43% alcoholic volume.

It's an extremely fresh, round, balanced cognac - light yet persistent, a combination of fruits and spices.  Michel Forgeron recommend drinking it over ice, or add to a mixer for a refreshing long drink.  Or, for a delightfully different way to enjoy cognac, try placing it in the freezer, and then drinking neat with some marinated scallops.  Tuly delicious.

Tasting Notes

Tasting review by Michel Forgeron Cognac:

Eye:  Golden color, with tints of amber

Nose: Aromatic - fresh vanilla that vanishes in a bouquet of spring - hyacinty, white narcissus, acacia, and dried lime.  Slightly spicy notes

Palate: Flexible and pleasant, light, yet round and persistent.

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.

    To blend or not to blend? – Cognac Guide: Eaux-de-vie and Cellar Masters
    26-11-2011 / Mac A Andrew’s Cognac Guide Here the classic debate between tradition and economies continues. First of all, there are many producers who do not blend in the classical sense. This means they do not blend eaux-de-vie from different crus, so Grande Champagne is forever Grande Champagne and so on. What they might do is to Read full article...
