Chateau Montifaud XO Cognac
"The Vallet family has been producing estate bottled Cognac at Chateau Montifaud for five generations: Augustin, Pierre, Maurice, Louis et Michel Vallet. Our 90 hectares of vineyard lie in the Fine Petite Champagne and Grand Grande Champagne -the two first growth in Cognac area- recognized as the finest in the Cognac region. Planted to Ugni Blanc, the wine is double distilled in century old copper stills and then aged naturally in oak. At Chateau Montifaud we resist the modern temptation to add caramel as a colouring agent. Instead we rely upon time to produce the complexity and handsome, natural colour for which Chateau Montifaud is known.
