Tasting Notes

Tasting notes: Very fruity aromas, dry and some fried almonds, on the nose. On the palate this cognac is fresh, very round and with a long finish. The Rancio Charentais is very present, with slight spices here and there.

Owned by the family Vallet for six generations, Chateau de Montifaud Cognac boasts 90 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 Chateau de Montifaud Cognac 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.
