Perhaps the bottle with the most striking packaging of all in our inventory, with the presentation box featuring a bizarre, gargoyle-like demon who appears to be in a carpentry workshop. It certainly suggests the alternative meaning of the word “spirit”!
Whilst the box might be demonic, there is nothing scary about the Cognac itself. Bottled in a much more sedate, and rather charming, decanter-style bottling, the Cognac is produced from grapes grown in the Petite Champagne cru. This cru is ranked as one of the finest in the entire Cognac region.
The spirit itself is rich and flavoursome, with delightful notes of sweet grape, pot pourri, vanilla, coconut cream and bright oak. This a Napoleon Cognac, meaning that the youngest spirit in the blend is a minimum of 6 years old.
Another cracking expression from Chateau de Montifaud, who once again demonstrate why they should be considered one of the very best producers in the business.
