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.
