CHÂTEAU DE MONTIFAUD VSOP COGNAC - FINE PETITE CHAMPAGNE - 40% VOL
Tremendously smooth and mellow with hints of pears, apricots and nuts on the palate. Smooth, satisfying and intensely long.
The base wines (Ugni Blanc) are stored on their lees for 2-3 months until distillation. This gives the resulting Cognac more aroma, mellowness and length. The wine is then double distilled in centuries old copper stills and aged naturally in oak.
The VSOP is kept in new oak casks for one year before being transferred into old oak (4-15 years old) for the remaining ageing time – a total of 8-10 years.
From the Petite Champagne, the V.S.O.P. is a full and fruity style of Cognac with apricot and pear aromas and flavours. The finish is complex, long and soft.
