Michel Forgeron XO Grande Champagne Cognac

Michel Forgeron Cognac

The Michel Forgeron XO Grande Champagne Cognac represents excellent value for money for a cognac of this quality.  Created solely from eaux-de-vie from the premier terroir of the region, it epitomizes all that makes such cognacs hold their amazing reputation.  Powerfully aromatic, the journey continues on tasting, and has a satisfyingly lengthy finish - complete with delicate rancio.

With each component aged for between 20-30 years, the cognac has naturally reached an over-proof 45% volume.  For the cigar smokers out there, Michel Forgeron recommend that it's the perfect accompaniment to a Quintero Petit Corona Cigar - or indeed any cigar, thanks to its aromas of spices and leather.

Tasting Notes

Tasting review by Michel Forgeron Cognac:

Eye: A wonderful deep color with golden reflections and flashes of brightness

Nose: Notes of leather and spices, curry, cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon, coffee, pastry, candied fruit

Palate:  caramelized notes, delicate rancio

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.
