Family property for more than 100 years, Michel and Francine Forgeron have been passionately developing, since 1965, elegant, authentic products of exceptional quality.

From 2ha of vines in 1965, the vineyard has now reached a surface area of 24ha, all of which is located on the Grande Champagne terroir, the most prestigious terroir in the Cognac production area, and within a radius of 5km around the estate.

50 years later, it is the sons of the house Pierre and Christophe Forgeron, who continue to keep the traditions and know-how of the Forgeron family alive. And anchor the house in modernity: sustainable viticulture and renewable energy (first producer in the region to invest in solar energy), offer the house a responsible development.

Subcategories

  • Michel Forgeron Classic

    Our emblematic range for more than 50 years...

    The reflection of the whole range of cognac aromas from 4 to more than 50 years old...

    Reflected blends, favouring natural ageing, offering an intense gustatory and aromatic richness at any age and whatever the alcoholic degree... (40% to 50% alc. depending on age)

  • Michel Forgeron...

    A range reduced to the 3 types of cognacs: V.S., V.S.O.P. and X.O.

    Available in several formats (bottles or decanters).

  • Les Barriques

    Our selection of "SINGLES" Cognacs, produced and distilled by Michel Forgeron between 1960 and 2000.

    - Barrique-60 to Barrique-89: "Bruts de fut" cognacs, without blending or reduction.

    - Barrique 90 to Barrique-2.0: Cognacs without blending but with a slight reduction (@ 47% alc.) to better appreciate them.

    These cognacs are still in casks where they continue to age and evolve. They are bottled in batches of 6 for each cognac.

    They are all different on the nose and in the mouth: fruity, spicy, woody, toasted, buttered, animal (leather), ...

    To better appreciate them, we advise you to serve them at room temperature, even slightly cool (17C), preferably in a "Tulip" glass

  • Les Collections

    Come and discover another aspect of cognac, our experiments, our favorites... through presentations proposed in very small series.

    The "Folle Blanche" boxes, the other grape variety of cognac, almost disappeared after the phylloxera crisis (1875) and whose fruity flavours we are rediscovering.

    The "Parcelles" boxes, a selection of parcels (Chante-Perdrix, Hurtebise, La Champagne, Pain Perdu, Combe Raine) and different years, characteristic of our vineyard. Vinification, distillation, ageing in small batches.

    In order to better appreciate and compare them, all these cognacs have been reduced to 47% alc.

  • Cognac

    This category is composed of our Grande Champagne Cognacs from 3 to 10 years old spirits.

    We call COGNAC a brandy that has undergone a double distillation in a "Charentais" type still produced in the delimited region of the appellation and respecting the specifications in terms of grape varieties, method of cultivation and ageing.

    As such, Cognac can only be marketed in bottles after a minimum of 30 months ageing in Limousin or Tronçais oak barrels.

    The youngest denominations are therefore V.S. (30 months minimum) and V.S.O.P. (54 months, i.e. 4,5 years in wood).

    For info: Brandy needs only 6 months in wood, Tequila "reposada" 6 months also, Tequila "añeja" only 12 months!!!!

    As for Vodka or Gin: NOTHING. Directly marketed after reduction at the exit of the still without passing through oak barrels.

  • Vieux Cognac

    This category is composed of our Grande Champagne Cognacs from 10 to 20 years old.

    It is from 10 years of ageing that we can use the term "VIEUX"/"OLD" COGNAC.

    It is also from 10 years of ageing that we can call it XO.

  • Très Vieux Cognac

    After 20 years of ageing, we can consider that we enter the VERY OLD COGNACS family.

    You will find here our COGNACS GRANDE CHAMPAGNE XO and Vieille Réserve.

    The spices and pastry notes largely dominate all the fragrances.

  • Extra Vieux Cognac

    In this category, find our COGNACS GRANDE CHAMPAGNE over 35 years of aging ...

  • La Folle Blanche

    ‘‘Folle Blanche collection was born from the desire of the Forgeron’s family to rediscover the Folle Blanche grape variety. It was the traditional grape variety of the Cognac and Armagnac regions. During the phylloxera epidemic at the end of the 19th century, the grapevariety disappear and the wine growers switched to the Ugni Blanc, a more resistant variety.

    Today, we have 5 hectares parcels dedicated to the cultivation of Folle Blanche, in order to rediscover the forgotten aromas of Cognac.

    Then, each Folle Blanche Cognac is aged in French oak barrels in the Michel Forgeron cellars.
