Majestic by name, Majestic by nature! Another superb Cognac in Chateau de Montifaud’s collection of fantastic XO bottlings.
Chateau de Montifaud is one of the very finest producers of spirit in the Cognac region. Family owned since their foundation in 1866, the proprietary Vallet family bring 6 generations of experience to the company. Over the years the distillery has developed one of the best reputations in the industry, and with bottlings of this quality it is easy to see why.
This spirit begins with high quality grapes, grown in the Petite Champagne region. Indeed, these grapes are grown in Montifaud’s very own vineyard, which has been in the possession of the Vallet family since 1837. There can be few locations in Cognac better suited for the creation of incredible spirit. Here the flat earth and chalky soil ensures that the vines have perfect amount of sunlight and acidity for creating delicious spirit.
This XO Cognac has been aged in French oak casks for at least 6 years (the minimum required by French law). This said, Montifaud are known for aging their spirit well in excessive of this legal requirement. This spirit has been aged in the Montifaud cellars, which have a cool and dry environment well-suited for the long maturation of spirits.
Drinkers should expect decadent flavours of sultanas, tinned tropical fruit, grapes, sweet wine, dark oak, vanilla and pot-pourri. All in all, this is a tour de force from Montifaud, that confirms them as one of Cognac’s premiere producers.
The spirit is presented in wonderfully designed packaging with an exciting centre-opening presentation box, and an over-sized decanter-style bottle, bound to catch the eye of all that see it. A Majestic Cognac in every respect!
