You can choose a wine card and select the delivery date as you checkout.
This VSOP is the best seller of the Chateau Montifaud range. A perfect balance & structure and already a great length on the palate. Lots of finesse and notes of vineyard flowers but evolution to dried flowers, some fruits also (pear, apricot). This VSOP is very round, mellow and pleasing on the palate.
This is the top of our PREMIUM RANGE, Chateau Montifaud VSOP(a sumptuous blend of eaux-de-vie from Petite Champagne Grande Champagne). Much older than the minimum of the 4 years required by the regulation, VSOP PREMIUM has a fruity and woody blend with floral aromas, evolving into dry flowers. This bodied cognac has a fat, mellow, fruity taste (plum and apricot). A great length typical of cognac from Grande Champagne, perfectly balanced by the finesse and roundness of the Petite Champagne.
The challenge and family story of 6 generations is driven by the same passion for 150 years to sell our own
production of top quality cognac only in bottles. 125ha of sustainable vineyard, mainly
ugni blanc variety in the 2 finest growths of the cognac region, make our cognac an actual "growers product".
As a petite Champagne specialist, we also control all the processes of elaboration with our own unique methods, which make our products different from the others for the constant improvement of the quality.
Grapes varieties: ugni-blanc, folle blanche.
Harvest: maturity controls; grapes are pressed within 30 minutes after
picking up to avoid oxidation.
Pressing: 3 pneumatic presses to quickly fill each one of 50hl and reduce oxidation.
Wine-making: fermentation temperatures control (maximum 27° to keep all aromas), and then wine
storage on the lees for optimum conservation without sulfites addition.
Artisanal Distillation: the white wine is distilled with lees very slowly; it also develops roundness and
concentrates the floral character of the cognac.
Ageing: Aged 12 months in new French oak casks, then several years in older barrels.
Reduction: slow (5%vol reduction every 2-3 months).
Blending: Petite and Grand Champagne growths.
