History of Cognac Logis de Montifaud

The house itself dates back to the 17th century. With high walls and parkland it is a typical property of the Charente region, and was built by a family called Babonnaud. It was then purchased in 1715 by a wealthy man from the Vendée, one Daniel Broussard de Fondmarrais. However, during the French Revolution the family disappeared, and all their assets were confiscated. In 1789, the manor house was then sold on to Pierre Longuet, a farmer to the then Countess of Talleyrand-Perigord, for a symbolic price. 

In 1849, marriage brought the families Longuet and Tachet together, because Marie Longuet married Pierre Tachet, who hailed from Cognac. The house and land fell into considerable disrepair over the following decades, until in 1959, Emile Landreau purchased the property.

Logis de Montifaud Cognac Today

An experienced wine growing family since 1840, the Landreaus already owned vineyards and they soon brought the vines of the Logis de Montifaud back up to standard since the purchase of the estate in 1959. Today it is Emile’s son Christian runs Logis de Montifaud Cognac. 

Drawing on five generations of knowledge, Christian Landreau works hard to produce cognacs faithful to the traditional method but also embracing modern techniques. In 2010 a photovoltaic plant was built, ensuring that the distillation and production process was not only efficient, but environmentally friendly as well. Christian is a regular exhibitor at many wine growing exhibitions throughout the country, perpetuating further knowledge and recognition of the brand Cognac Logis de Montifaud.

Pretty long after your question but no, Chateau de Montifaud is different. Here are their sites: http://www.logis-montifaud.com http://www.chateau-montifaud.com/ Chateau de Montifaud XO is pretty good value for money. Its smooth, flavor lasts reasonably long. Maybe a bit on the sweet side. Not sure about the Logis de Montifaud - its still on the list of ones to try. Both are generally small production boutique congnacs.
