Château de Montifaud

Chateau de Montifaud is definitely a family affair. For six generations the Vallet family has been producing some of the best brandies in France. The vineyard, first created in 1837 by Augustin, has seen the succession pass from generation to generation: Pierre, Maurice Louis and Michel. Then, in October 2000, Laurent came to join his father and grandfather. According to the family tradition, when a son joins his father to work together, 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 their « Paradise » cellar lie bottles of cognac skillfully crafted by Pierre and Maurice Vallet. These family cellars have also seen the ageing of cognacs that date from 1920 to the present day. A part of these vintages has been sealed by the BNIC (« Bureau National Interprofessionnel du Cognac », the National Interprofessional Authority of Cognac). Over the course of generations, the vineyards had extended until over 125 hectares in the two premier growth regions of the cognac area : in the Grande and Petite Champagne, whose soil contains a very great amount of active limestone. This chalky content is a dominant factor in the quality of our « eaux-de-vie » (wine spirits). Chateau de Montifaud apply the traditional techniques passed down from father to son and ,at the same time, combining the new technologies of this day and age. All this allows to accentuate the natural qualities of « eaux-de-vie » : the floral touches, the delicacy and elegance to the nose, the roundness, suppleness and long finish.
