Pineau, matured for ten years, has passed its time and now wants to be in your glass. An extremely delicious case with the sipping charisma brought by age.
Terroir, production method and maturation: Pineau des Charentes is a specialty of the Cognac region, where grape juice (either a little or not at all fermented) is added to the Cognac eau-de-vie. The result is a sweet, very fruity drink, which usually has 16 – 22% alcohol. Aged 10 years in oak.
Use: Aperitif, foie gras and mature cheeses.
Description: Oak-tinged, walnut aroma; versatile and nuanced thanks to long maturation. Although Pineau des Charentes is usually chilled, older Pinaus are best at room temperature.
