Francois Voyer Pineau des Charentes Rouge (Red Mistelle) (Fresh grape juice + cognac) 17.5% 750ml
The exquisite complexity of fresh and dry fruit... Composed of approximately 2/3 of grape juice and 1/3 of Cognac, blended just after the grape harvesting. Aged in oak barrels more than 5 years after the blend. Plums and pear aromas, with some dried fruit hints (nut, hazelnut,). To be tasted pretty cool as an aperitif, but also a matchless dessert wine (vanilla cream, crème brulée, Tatin tart, white chocolate...) or as well with a goose liver pate. Colour: Mahogany colour, deep rosé Nose: Candied quince, blackberries, blackcurrant, white tobacco Palate: Firm but supple, perfume generous and powerful red fruits
