The name Château de Montifaud is historical-ly linked to the land where the distillery sits. A castle used to be located there, which is why the word “château” is permitted to be used, a rarity in Cognac. Documents show that the Vallet family has been making cognac here since 1837, though the family believes production started even earlier. Sixth gener-ation Laurent Vallet currently runs the business, taking over from his father Michel in 2010.
Much older than the minimum of 4 years of ageing required by the regulation,this VSOP is the best seller of Château Montifaud range. Artisanal Distillation with light lees aged12 months in new french oak casks then several years in older casks.
Lots of finesse, notes of vineyard flower but evolution to dried flowers,some fruits also (pear,apricot), this VSOP is very round,mellow and fine on the palate.
Both as aperiti for digestive, no special way to enjoy this VSOP,pleasure is guaranteed anyway…
