Château Montifaud - VS

Château Montifaud - VS

France

Château de Montifaud's long history goes back to 1837, when Augustin Vallet began the Château. Meanwhile, already the sixth Vallet generation produces their cognac with only their own grapes, grown on the approximately 75 hectare private vineyard in Petite Champagne and Grande Champagne. This cognac first aged 10 to 12 months in new oak barrels, after which it has been transferred to used or Roux' barrels.

Rochenac - VS

Rochenac - VS

Cognac

The producers of Rochenac decided that marketing wasn’t as important as investing time and money in making a quality cognac. So, while you might not have heard of Rachenac VS before, this 3-year old Cognac does offer great value for money. This French Cognac is traditionally produced and has aged in oak casks.

Joseph Guy - VSOP

Joseph Guy - VSOP

Assemblage

Joseph Guy VSOP is aged for at least four years, resulting in a perfectly rounded flavor. The longer maturation in the barrel makes the taste more rounded by the action of oxygen and more complex because the oak fabrics add vanillin and tannin. The color is deep golden amber-like. The bouquet is formed by full timber and tones of flower. The taste is characterized by traces of oak and rancio. The finish is complex, balanced and surprisingly long.

Château Montifaud - XO

Château Montifaud - XO

Petite Champagne

Only 13 Cogac houses may bear the name 'Chateau'. Château Montifaud, originally located in the Petit Champagne, had been owned by the Vallet family since 1866 and, despite the fact that the chateau itself was bombed down in 1944, Montifaud, with 120 hectares of vineyards in the Petit Champagne and 5 in the Grande Champagne, is still entitled to use the term' Chateau'. Despite the legal minimum of 6 years, this XO is 30 years old and made from grapes from the Petit Champagne.

Frapin - Chateau Fontpinot, XO

Frapin - Chateau Fontpinot, XO

Grande Champagne

Chateau Fontpinot is located in the heart of the Cognac region: the Grande Champagne. The best quality Cognac is produced here. Grande Champagne Cognac needs to age longer to reach full development. The Fontpinot XO casks mature 20 to 22 years and are not kept in cellars but in the attic. Located right under the roof, the higher temperatures cause no less than 6% alcohol to evaporate per year. This is one of the reasons why this unique, highly concentrated, complex and fragrant cognac is created.

Giboin - Millesime 1995

Giboin - Millesime 1995

Borderies

Just like his ancestors since 1830, François Giboin chooses quality. The Giboin Domaine is located in the Borderie, the smallest Cru of the Cognac area. Only a few Cognac makers release a 'Millesime', because the legal inspection on years is strictly regulated by law; only bottles with Cognac from barrels sealed by the BNIC may be marked with year mark. Giboin has only 2 barrels sealed per year. The Cognac is beautifully sturdy, with many aromas of herbs and fruits.
