Suppleness and fineness on the palate Chateau de Montifaud (Montifaud-Castle) has been owned by the Vallet family for five generations. Deeds executed by notaries in the 18th and 19th centuries are held within the family recordsThe 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.
Thus it is that in the darkness of our Paradise cellar lie bottles of Cognac skilfully made by Pierre and Maurice Vallet.
Our family cellars have also seen the ageing of cognacs that date from 1920 to the persent day, part of which, in vintage years, has been sealed by the B.N.I.C (the National Interprofessional Office of Cognac).
Our vineyard stretches over 90 hectares in the two premier regions of cognac area :
In the Grande and Petite Champagne whole soil contains a very great amount of active limestone (see photo, opposite : a cross-section of the land from our Petite Champagne vineyard).
This chalky content plays a dominating role in quality of our 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 our cognacs (producing, distilling, ageing), we apply our traditional craftsmanship and skill handed down from father to son.
These allow us to enhance the natural qualities of our 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
