Like all Michel Forgeron cognacs, this "Folle Blanche 2009" Cognac comes from the Grande Champagne region, the most prestigious of the Cognac production area.
This Cognac "Folle Blanche 2009" has been aged for more than 10 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 - Timut Pepper
Visual inspection: The Cognac "Folle Blanche 2009" has an old gold colour.
Olfactory examination: A nose of lime blossom and Timut pepper.
Taste test: Sweetness of dried fruit and honey in the mouth. The bitterness of almond and the spiciness of Timut pepper at the end. The discovery of exoticism in the world of Cognac.
