The Château Montifaud has belonged to the Vallet family for six generations now. The vineyard was created in 1837 by Augustin and has seen the succession of Pierre, Maurice, Louis and Michel. Laurent came to join his father and grandfather in October 2000. According to the family tradition, when a son joins his father, 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 lies the limited-edition expression Château de Montifaud Heritage Maurice Vallet. Only 5 bottles of Château de Montifaud’s rare 100 year-old, grower-distiller cognac will be available in the United States.
“The Château de Montifaud Heritage Maurice Vallet cognac comes from an exceptional blend of eau-de-vie and is a family treasure,” says Laurent Vallet, master blender and owner. “Upon tasting, the senses are filled with the closely guarded secret atmosphere of Château de Montifaud’s family cellar and the four generations who have contributed to the creation of the blend.”
A bottle of the rare Château de Montifaud Heritage Maurice Vallet retails for $7,500.
