Their Cognacs are warm and smooth spirits which delight the palate with a wide range of sensations. Both Houses specialise in old Cognacs and Vintage Cognacs. Chateau de Montifaud itself has belonged to the Vallet family for six generations now, the vineyard being created by Augustin Rollet in 1837 and the Appellation Chateau itself is very rare for Cognac.
Their base wine, needed for distillation, comes essentially from two sub-Appellations, Grande and Petite Champagne. This is equivalent for example to a Premier Cru or Grand Cru vineyard in Burgundy. Heritage 50-Year-old and 60-year-old brandies are a speciality of Montifaud. 40% volume spirits unless stated.
