Description

The Michel Forgeron XO Grande Champagne Cognac is an award-winning very old blend that represents excellent value for money for a Cognac of this quality. Created solely from eaux-de-vie of the premier terroir; Grande Champagne, this XO Cognac epitomizes everything that earns a great cognac its credible reputation. As each blend has been aged for a maximum of 30 years, XO Grande Champagne Cognac has naturally reached an over-proof 45% volume.

This is a round, supple and delicate eau-de-vie, with a very good integration of aromas. When tasting caramelized notes and a delicate rancio prevail across the palette, meanwhile its endless length will leave you pining for more tasting experiences of the sort.

Sustainability is at the core of this close knit family-run business, 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, opting for a sustainable approach to the viticulture that, of course, takes place on their land within the Grande Champagne region.

Presentation of the bottle

Presentation is very important to the house of Michel Forgeron and XO Grande Champagne Cognac is no exception. The bottle is of a traditional Cognacaise style, with a classic vintage design on the label and golden wax seal.

How to enjoy

Avid cigar smokers are in luck with this eaux-de-vie as the house Michel Forgeron recommends accompanying XO Grande Champagne Cognac with a Quintero Petit Corona Cigar to be specific. However any cigar will do this Cognac justice - thanks to its spicy aromatics and hints and leather.

Overall a smooth cognac

I can’t say enough good things about this cognac. It’s silky, aromatic and the flavor is beautiful. It’s an amazing value.


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.
