A superb, well aged edition of Cognac Bertrand’s Pineau des Charentes.
This is the historic Cognac house’s take on this classic aperitif from the south west of France. The liqueur has been made with Ugni Blanc & Colombard grapes, grown on vines up to 80 years old situated in the Petite Fine Champagne cru. Older vines are known to produce grapes with a more concentrated flavour.
The bottling contains a mixture of 75% fresh grape juice, and 25% one year old eaux-de-vie. After blending, the Pineau is aged for 15 years in French oak casks from the Limousin and Tronçais forests.
The result is a deeper, more complex and flavoursome Pineau, with notes of woody spice, dried fruits, apple, pear, fig, honey, sweet grape juice, nuts and gentle oak.
Chill in the fridge and serve as an aperitif. Pairs well with creamy cheeses.
