Like all Michel Forgeron cognacs, this Cognac "Folle Blanche 2006" comes from the Grande Champagne region, the most prestigious of the Cognac production area.
This Cognac "Folle Blanche 2006" 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 - "The most Bourbon of Cognacs"
Visual inspection: The Cognac "Folle Blanche 2006" has an old gold colour.
Olfactory examination: A vanilla nose suggesting Bourbon or American oak ageing.
Taste test: A mouth full of liquorice, nuts, rancio, with a very strong amplitude. A spicy and smoky finish suggesting an American whiskey.
