Description: Much older than the minimum of 4 years of ageing required by the regulation, this VSOP is the best seller of Château Montifaud range.
Process: Artisanal distillation with light lees, aged few months in new french oak casks then several years in older casks.
Tasting notes: Not too light nor too complex, a perfect balance, structure and already great length on the palate. Lots of finesse, notes of vineyard flower but evolution to dried flowers, some fruits also (pear, apricot), this VSOP is very round, mellow and fine on the palate.
Both as aperitif or digestive, no special way to enjoy this VSOP, pleasure is guaranteed anyway…
As food pairing suggestion, Catherine Vallet also likes associating the VSOP with scallops cooked with the endive cream.
