Château de Montifaud XO Christmas Cognac
The spirit of the festive season is what you'll experience with the Chateau Montifaud XO Christmas Cognac. Crafted by the independent and family-led Château de Montifaud, this latest creation is a celebration of the holiday season and the delectable dishes that accompany it. Drawing inspiration from the warmth of Christmas traditions, this cognac is an embodiment of meticulous craftsmanship and generations of expertise.
Presentation of the bottle
Presented in a luxuriously designed bottle, the Chateau Montifaud XO Christmas Cognac exudes sophistication. Its meticulous aging process, which first took place in de-charred barrels and subsequently in ancient Limousin oak casks, gifts it with an unparalleled depth of character. This results in a spirit that glistens with a rich, dark gold hue, further illuminated by radiant reddish reflections, evoking images of a cozy winter evening by the fireside.
How to drink
To truly relish this cognac's intricate flavors, serve it neat or over ice. It dances on the palate with fruit and spice, making it an ideal accompaniment to robust cheeses. Alternatively, consider pairing with gamey dishes or sumptuous poultry, such as duck, to elevate your dining experience to new festive heights.
About 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.
