Tasting review

Eye: Polished mahogany with golden reflections.

Nose: Dried flowers and nuts followed by pear, toffee and olive oil. Rancio appears clearly alongside baked apricot and caramel notes.

Palate: Suppleness and roundness on the palate. Dried fruit (prunes, dates) emerge in the mouth, leading to a finish reminiscent of dusty cellars, oak and leather. 

Growth area & soil: Petite Champagne

Description

Chateau de Montifaud Napoléon Cognac: a Cornucopia of Flavor

Aged for a minimum of 15 years and up to 18 years or more, Chateau de Montifaud Napoléon Cognac is a Petite Champagne blend that shows exceptional flavors of nuts, wood and elusive rancio. This is a great example of well-aged Cognac from a classic terroir. The chalky and slightly rocky soils of the Petite Champagne produce rich, acidic Ugni Blanc grapes that are perfect for making quality eaux-de-vie. While very similar to the produce of the Grande Champagne, they are also slightly less refined and with an underlying rustic character that develops with age. While Petite Champagne Cognacs are also great young, they truly come into their own when matured for an extended period of time, as demonstrated with this expression. 

The Vallet family have been the guardians of Château de Montifaud Cognac for six generations and are today responsible for 125 hectares of vineyards across the Grande and Petite Champagne regions. Specializing in traditional production methods, the family chooses to distil only Ugni Blanc grapes and age their Cognacs much longer than required by law. #

Awards and Accolades

Awarded 90-95 points by Wine Enthusiast, and described in the following manner:

“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.”  

Presentation of the Bottle

The tall, straight bottle features a heavy glass base and gold foil for a touch of luxury. The oval cream-colored label has a vintage look, contrasting with the otherwise modern design. A matching presentation tube finishes off the package, making this a great gift for any Cognac lover. 

How to Enjoy Chateau de Montifaud Napoléon Cognac

With its bold flavors and umami character, this Cognac is an exceptional match for flavorful cheeses like Roquefort or Camembert. Serve it after dinner as a digestif alongside a cheeseboard, or pair with a cigar for a luxurious tasting experience.

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.
