Generally categorised as a fortified wine (aka ‘mistelle’ or ‘vin de liqueur’ in France), made from a blend of lightly-fermented grape must and Cognac eau-de-vie. Vieux (old) Pineau des Charentes is oak aged for at least 5 years, while ‘Extra Vieux’ (very old) examples remain in cask for a minimum of 10 years. Both red, white and rose versions are available, and are typically drunk chilled as an aperitif, a digestif or included as an ingredient in cocktails. Deep gold / copper colour. Aromas of bitter almond mingle with manuka honey, dried apricot and sour cherry notes. The palate is concentrated, clean and fresh with almond and dried apricot flavours beautifully balanced by refreshing acidity. Soft, warming spirit. Late pecan, honey burst. Finishes clean and dry with a bitter almond, dried apricot fade. An excellent example

The cognac house of Charpentron is a traditional and family one, and has been passed down the line from father to son, mother to daughter, for ten generations. The estate, known as Clos de Merienne, covers 178 acres of prime Grande Champagne countryside, with 74 acres of these covering the hills around the estate as vineyards. With such a long history, it’s perhaps no surprise that the cellars of Charpentron boast some very old cognacs, some of which are 100 years of age or more.
