DES HOMMES ET DES FEMMES

Thierry Forget, vigneron

Our family has been growing vines and making champagne for four generations. After Eugène, Paul and Edmond, Thierry Forget (a graduate of the faculty of Oenology at Reims University) now manages the House of Forget-Chemin.

only grapes grown and picked on the family estate are used to make our champagnes

As a ‘récoltant manipulant’ (grower producer) i attach particular importance to the fact that only grapes grown and picked on the family estate are used to make champagnes which are much in demand.

une qualité constante

From the harvest right through to the moment of bottling, each step of the wine-making is carried out entirely in-house to guarantee constant quality for each and every one of our champagnes which i am please to sell.De la vendange à la mise en bouteilles, chacune des étapes de l’élaboration de nos champagnes sont réalisées dans nos celliers et faits par nos soins pour garantir ainsi une qualité constante de nos différentes cuvées.

A beautiful pink colour with copper highlights and tiny bubbles that are even more appealing to the eye.
The nose is rich and complex revealing notes of cherry and black currant.
On the palate the attack is pleasantly supple with the effervescence lending freshness at the start before a warmer, fuller character develops.

‘A generous champagne’.Carte Rosé is a champagne to enjoy outdoors : in the park, in the garden, or on the terrace.

A wonderful match with lightly spiced dishes and desserts that are not too sweet (fresh red fruit salad or fruit tart…). Try it with red mullet, snails, magret de canard, or saddle of lamb.

"Une découverte"
There are no rules for Cuvée Héritage Paul Forget. One year it may be made with a single grape varietal and the next year with more than one. The wines in the blend may come from just one year, or from several, it all depends on what takes the fancy of the wine maker, Thierry Forget. It’s a unique creation.

CONCOURS GENERAL AGRICOLE DE PARIS

A vintage champagne that is the perfect reflection of the year: light and precise, warm and opulent.
Clean and open on the palate; a champagne at the peak of maturity that will still be drinking well for the next 3-5 years.
Wonderful as an aperitif and excellent too with light, tender dishes particularly fish, crab bisque, breaded langoustine, or grilled oysters…
To preserve the balance of the wine serve in tall flutes at a temperature of 8-10° C.

LE SAVIEZ-VOUS

SEXUAL CONFUSION

Download the file

Sexual confusion, which has been practiced in French vineyards since 1996, is a natural method of combatting grape worms.
The idea is to disrupt mating between male and female butterflies by dispersing an artificial pheromone in the vineyards which mimics the natural chemical produced by the females to attract mates.
The pheromone is contained in plastic capsules which are hung on the supporting wires in the vineyard (500 per hectare) just before the butterflies arrive in spring each year. The male butterflies can’t locate the females which means less mating and fewer eggs which results in fewer caterpillars and less damage to the grapes.
Organising the placing of the capsules in the vineyards requires considerable cooperation amongst the vignerons because, to be effective, it has to be done on an area covering no less than 5 adjacent hectares, but it’s a good opportunity for the vignerons, sometimes 100 or more, to work together on a common project, to share a bite to eat and, of course, to enjoy a flute of champagne together.
In Champagne more than 9,000 hectares across 126 villages are protected by sexual confusion – that’s almost a third of the entire region – and in this regard Champagne leads the way amongst French wine regions. It’s also widely used in Switzerland and Germany because it avoids the use of insecticides and is an approved part of organic viticultural practice.
