Tasting review

Eye: Deep amber.

Nose: Bursts of summer florals typical of this region. Linden flowers, elderflower and apple blossom are followed by ripe orchard fruits.

Palate: Sweet cider made from red apples. Pear juice and just a hint of almond lead to a long finish, somewhat unusual for a VS expression. 

Description

Chateau de Montifaud VS Cognac: Youth and Exuberance

Aged for a minimum of two years, Chateau de Montifaud VS Cognac is a Petite Champagne blend that delights with its freshness and youth. Aromas of pears, apples, and a hint of linden flowers delight on both the nose and pala, making this an exceptional benchmark Cognac of the region. 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. Petite Champagne Cognacs are equally great young - as expressed in this VS bottling - or aged for decades. 

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. 

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. This would certainly make a great gift for any Cognac lover. 

How to Enjoy Chateau de Montifaud VS Cognac

Although this expression is wonderful at room temperature, you could also add some ice or a splash of cold water for a lighter taste sensation. If you’re feeling particularly experimental, try it with a mixer or as a base for a special cocktail.

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.
