A Grande Champagne Cognac to celebrate refined female taste and power
No longer the old man’s spirit, a new brand of Cognac has been created to celebrate the spirit and beauty of the modern woman. Placing Cognac firmly in the woman’s realm, MONFLEURIE L’Orchidée Cognac is a chic and luxurious spirit with a feminine and floral twist. This first launch edition is dedicated to the Orchid, the flower which so perfectly embodies feminine beauty, power and love. L’Orchidée Cognac is made exclusively with grapes from the Grande Champagne; renowned for its undulating hills.
The floral blend descends from a 1960 harvest, and is enhanced by hundreds of eaux-de-vie aged for decades. Originating from Angeac, the sun-drenched region has millions of years of unique geology and fossilization to thank for its unique maritime climate that makes the finest of eaux-de-vie.
The Cognac itself was created in collaboration with the Boinaud family who have been perfecting their family savoir-faire for over 24 generations; they believe in producing Cognac from a ‘single estate’ and have one of the most impressive Cognac reserves in the world. You will not forget this unique sensory journey on the nose and palate – it is one that is undeniably feminine. Only two barrels were produced for the first edition of this MONFLEURIE Cognac, so it is certainly something to be treasured.
L’Orchide Cognac decanter
It is bottled in a unique, custom crystal decanter that is elegant, with a finely crafted cap. The decanter is hand-blown by a century-old glassmaker in France, and embodies everything that is delicately artisan. The bottle itself is hand-engraved by a French artist, and arrives in a lacquered wooden case that will make a wonderful keepsake.
MONFLEURIE is the brainchild of Olga Otrokhova, who is passionate about the world of Cognac and its unique savoir-faire. Having tasted a number of brands over the years, she felt that many of the larger ones were rather heavy or masculine in flavor and aroma. It was this moment that inspired her to create her own blend – with the power of women at the forefront of her mind.
The name of the Cognac is inspired by the French for “my flower”, in the belief that women are individual, precious and unique – one singular flower that should be adored and cherished.
This MONFLEURIE Cognac will not be the last. They are making an entrance with a series of limited editions, with the rare 1960 nectar forming the core of each one. Each edition will be named after a flower, which will also appear on the decanter and collar.
Ma meilleure amie vient de me l' offrir pour mon anniversaire. Quel produit incroyable. La carafe est Magnifique et son emballage très féminin. Le melange floral est subtile avec une très belle palette de sensations qui incarne l'art de l'excellence... BRAVO.
