Michel Forgeron

In 1909, the ancestors of the Forgeron family settled on the land of Grande Champagne at a place called "Chez Richon" not far from Segonzac.

Small capital of the Grande Champagne, classified Premier Cru of the Cognac region, Segonzac has a worldwide reputation, thanks to its hillsides which probably saw, but nothing proves, the rise of the reputation of its wines and subsequently, in the 1610s, of its brandies, later called in the second half of the 19th century Cognac.

The fourth generation still lives here today and it's the two brothers who are at the helm, one more focused on monitoring the vineyard, the other more commercially oriented.

The vineyard covers some 24 hectares, 70% of which are on plains and 30% on hillsides, the whole planted to 23 hectares of Ugni-Blanc and one hectare of Folle Blanche, the two main grape varieties for Cognac authorized by law.

It was only in 1977 that the first bottle appeared on the markets.

Description Michel Forgeron Barrique 91.

It is an exclusively Grande Champagne and exclusively 1991 cognac. It is a brut de fût cognac. As soon as the distillation is finished, the cognac is put into French oak barrels. The barrel bears the relevant vintage, and to date this cognac has always been kept in barrels.
The color is very light amber and this cognac can be drunk in a tulip or balloon glass by heating it slightly in the palm of the hand. It can also be drunk on the rocks or as a long drink with a plain schweppes or a citrus schweppes.
