Hailing from the Fine Petite Champagne terroir is a light and fresh Cognac - the Chateau de Montifaud XO. With this Cognac, they have chosen to put the spotlight on the wonders of this cru in particular to show its own traits and qualities. The result is a smooth Extra Old Cognac that is on average around 28 to 30 years old. It includes eaux-de-vie from distillations of 1963, 1965 and 1967. The Petite Champagne is famous for its soil; the signature composition is chalky and able to produce Cognac to age with complexity and with great depth. The combination of eaux-de-vie from this fine terroir result in a non-tannic Cognac with little taste of spirit, and an excellent rancio. The aromas of dried fruits and slight almond nuttiness means that it is an ideal choice if you prefer a lighter Cognac.
