Cognac Chateau de Montifaud
The Château Montifaud has belonged to the Vallet family for six generations now.
The vineyard was created in 1837 by Augustin and has seen the succession of Pierre, Maurice, Louis and Michel. Laurent came to join his father and grandfather in October 2000.
According to the family tradition, when a son joins his father, a part of the cognac distilled in that year is set preciously aside and will only be sold by the future generations.
Today, in the darkness of the“Paradise” cellar lie bottles of Cognac skilfully made by Pierre and Maurice Vallet.
The vineyard stretches over 75 hectares in the two premier regions of cognac area : In the “Grande” and “Petite Champagne” whose soil contains a very great amount of active limestone.
This chalky content plays a dominating role in quality of the Eaux de Vie (spirits, cognacs).
Thanks to this exceptional land, Château Montifaud possesses an extremely high potential for quality.
During each of the different phases of making the cognacs (producing, distilling, ageing), Château Montifaud apply the traditional craftsmanship and skill handed down from father to son.
These allow Château Montifaud to enhance the natural qualities of the Eaux de Vie : the floral touches, the delicacy and elegance to the nose, the roundness, the suppleness and the long-lasting taste in the mouth.
In order to bring out the traits of the cognacs, Château Montifaud propose the “Grande Champagne” and the “Petite Champagne” separately, each with its own qualities.
As well, Château Montifaud propose in vintage years, the showcase of their expertise.
Château Montifaud family cellars have also seen the ageing of cognacs that date from 1920 to the present day, part of which, in vintage years, has been sealed by the B.N.I.C (the National Interprofessional Office of Cognac).
