Forgeron - Grande Champagne - Cognac - Hors d'Âge
Like all Michel Forgeron cognacs, this Cognac Hors d'Âge comes from the Grande Champagne region, the most prestigious of the Cognac production area.
This Cognac Hors d'Âge is a blend of extra-aged cognacs, aged from 40 to over 50 years in French oak barrels in Michel Forgeron's cellars, to reach 50 degrees of alcohol by natural evaporation and without the addition of water.
This Hors d'Âge Cognac has a colour tinged with amber and fire, rich with deep golden reflections.
Large persistent tears and a necklace of fine pearls form around the glass.
Delicate aromas appear from the very first moments; a first note of Violet is brought by the power of the sweet spice aromas Liquorice, Gingerbread accompnaied by hints of candied cinnamon orange and Sandalwood.
The Eau-de-Vie then gradually blossoms towards the balsamic scent of Armenian paper and the sweetness of a smoky Cocoa.
Powerful, elegant, almost spicy.
The long lingering of its delicate aromas on the taste buds prolong the pleasure of tasting this exceptional velvety rancio.
