Chateau de Montifaud Napoleon Cognac
Appellation (Cru) & sol: Petite Champagne
Chateau de Montifaud Napoleon Cognac is a blend of eaux-de-vies from the Petite Champagne terroir.
This cognac was awarded 90-95 points by Wine Enthusiast, and described in the following manner:
“It’s 15 to 18 years old. Appearance is topaz/bronze. The initial nosing passes highlight deep roasted nut and nougat aromas. Time in the glass finds subtle fragrances of hard cheese and oil. The palate entry is intensely caramel-like and dry; at midpalate, the hard cheese quality returns and makes a solid case for early-phase rancio presence. The aftertaste displays definite rancio earthiness/dustiness.”
À propos de Château de Montifaud
Owned by the family Vallet for six generations, Chateau de Montifaud Cognac boasts 125 hectares of vineyards that are located in both the Grande Champagne and Petite Champagne growing regions. The house produces a large, high quality range of cognacs – including various vintages from years that have had an exceptional harvest. One family tradition that Cognac Chateau Montifaud is proud to follow, is that of when a new baby boy is born to the head of the cognac house, that part of the cognac created from that year’s harvest is set to one side. This is kept for a varying number of years, but may only be sold by future generations.
