Chateau de Montifaud Héritage L3 50Cognac is a cask strength cognac. Currently stored in old casks, this cognac has come down to less than 50% alcohol naturally. The blend is created from a blend of eaux-de-vies from between 1947 to 1955. By storing the cognacs in old casks any excess of tannin has been avoided, despite the amount of years aged.
An oxidized cognac (“madérisé”) which has nearly attained all its fullness, wit flavors of nuts and cigar boxes, along with tantalizing hints of spices. A supple, round cognac with exceptional rancio.
About Chateau 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.
