Ch Montifaud VSOP Cognac in a single pack
This is the top of our PREMIUM RANGE,Chateau Montifaud VSOP (sumptuous blend of eaux-de-vie from Petite Champagne & Grande Champagne). Much older than the minimum the 4 years required by the regulation, VSOP PREMIUM has a fruity
and woody blend with floral aromas which evolves to dry flowers. This bodied cognac has a fat and 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 a real "growers product".
Petite Champagne specialist, we also control all the process of elaboration with our own and unique methods
which make our products different than the others for the constant improvement of the quality.
Grapes varieties : ugni-blanc, folle blanche.
Soils : limestone.
Harvest : maturity controls ; grapes are pressed within 30 minutes after
picking up to avoid oxidation.
Pressing : 3 pneumatic presses to fill each one of 50hl very quickly and to 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 distillated with lees very slowly ; it develops also roundness and
concentrates the floral character of the cognac.
