Like all Michel Forgeron cognacs, this Cognac "Folle Blanche 2011" comes from the Grande Champagne region, the most prestigious of the Cognac production area.
This Cognac "Folle Blanche 2011" 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, which is the main grape variety in most Cognacs.
Tasting - "The most whisky of Cognacs"
Visual inspection: The Cognac "Folle Blanche 2011" has a golden colour.
Olfactory examination: A spicy and woody nose that might suggest Scotch whisky.
Taste test: The palate is true to the nose, full of spices, woody and remarkably round. Its almost peaty, toasted wood finish would bring us closer to a Lowlands whisky. Probably the most whisky of the Cognacs!
