Growth area & soil: Grande Champagne
The Michel Forgeron VSOP is a fantastically fresh and well-balanced Cognac that will transport you to a blissful summer's day upon enjoying the very first sip. Produced in the prestigious terroir of Grande Champagne this VSOP Cognac is an emblem of everything that is so great about the region. It contains a deliciously light blend of vintage eaux-de-vies, with the oldest of the blend dating back to 1998. Letting nature take its course, the house of Michel Forgeron has allowed each blend to age naturally in order to ensure, not just excellent, fine quality eaux-de-vie, but an environmentally-friendly approach to production too.
At the heart of this close knit family-run business are eco-friendly values and the importance of renewability, 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 a sustainable approach to the viticulture that takes place on their land within the Grande Champagne region.
Presentation of the bottle
The Michel Forgeron VSOP is a Cognac for those who enjoy the finer things in life and its luxurious bottle and label design reflect this. Presented in a tall, slim bottle design, the vintage style label and golden wax seal - spice up an otherwise rather simplistic design.
How to enjoy
The house of Michel Forgeron suggests serving VSOP Cognac on the rocks or with a dash of syrup to sweeten up an aperitif. As this Cognac contains fresh and fruity notes, it pairs perfectly with seafood in the summer. Try chilling VSOP in the freezer, then pour neat and pair with some marinated scallops for a truly unforgettable tasting experience.
Don't sleep on this VSOP
This 100% Grand Champagne 43% cognac is a very unexpected and nice surprise! Nice Golden color. Nose is very aromatic, with a lot of floral and vanilla notes, even some orange. Palate is light, very well rounded, hint of citrus, the finish is fairly long and smooth. I highly recommend this VSOP...
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.
