Michel Forgeron - Cognac - Grande Champagne

It was in 1909 that the ancestors of the Forgeron family settled in the most prestigious heart of the Cognac area: Grande Champagne, at a place called "Chez Richon" just east of Ségonzac, capital of the Grande Champagne region. Classified as the Premier Cru of the region of Cognac, Ségonzac with it's hill sides and special soil has a world-wide reputation for its wines and subsequently, in the 1610s for its brandies which, since the second half of the 19th century became known as Cognac.
