Like all Michel Forgeron cognacs, this "Folle Blanche 2012" Cognac comes from the Grande Champagne region, the most prestigious of the Cognac production area.
This Cognac "Folle Blanche 2012" has been aged for more than 8 years in French oak barrels in the cellars of Domaine Michel Forgeron. It has been patiently reduced by adding distilled water to be offered at 47 degrees of alcohol, a good compromise between preservation of taste and aromas and power in the mouth.
This Cognac is made from the Folle Blanche grape variety alone. It is much fruitier than the Ugni Blanc that is the majority of Cognacs.
Tasting - Lemongrass & Ginger
Visual inspection: The Cognac 'Folle Blanche 2012' has a golden colour.
Olfactory examination: A fine and very fresh nose of lemongrass and white flowers.
Taste test: Fresh white fruit in the mouth, followed by a touch of ginger. A spicy finish to be enjoyed as an aperitif or digestive.
