The Monfleurie blend was created by the grandmasters of Maison Boinaud Estate, renowned for its savoir-faire since the 17th century. Naturally colored and bottled at 40.6% ABV, Monfleurie has a unique character, richly complex with a lingering sophisticated flavor that continuously delivers new layers of aromas on the palate. Each element of Monfleurie is an expression of beauty, tradition and craftsmanship passed down through time. Bottled in a floral decanter inspired by the shape of the Versailles garden vases, the bottle is meticulously hand - blown, individually numbered and engraved.
Notes of Iris, jasmine, orange blossom, violets, spice, sandal wood, cinnamon, cigar box, and cinnamon followed by crème brulée, dry apricots. This finish is velvety, round and complex.
Cognac is a type of brandy produced in the Cognac region of France.
Because the French take it very seriously, there are numerous rules cognac makers have to follow not to fall “short” into the brandy category.
The white wine from the specific grapes (Ugni blanc) has to be doubly distilled in a copper pot still before being aged for at least two years in oak casks from which the wood can only come from two specific forests in France (Limousin or Tronçais).
Depending on the age, there are three types of cognac, the youngest V.S. (Very Special), V.S.O.P. (Very Superior Old Pale), and the X.O. (Extra Old)
