In the mouth it is fresh and complex. It opens with notes of apricot kernel, honey and rancio, it is generous, structured and finishes with a touch of bitterness that makes this pineau very digestible.

The colour of our Vieux Pineau Blanc (old Pineau) is a golden yellow with nuances of amber.
The old Pineau des Charentes Blanc is a golden yellow colour with nuances of amber, hints of ageing in oak.
The sensory taste is characteristic of old Pineau des Charentes. In Charente, the word “rancio” is used to define these notes of ageing, characterised by notes of dried fruit, specifically walnuts. It is the alchemy of the barrel wood and the balance of the Pineau des Charentes which contribute to this delicate evolution.
Fine and spicy, this Vieux Pineau des Charentes blanc is rounded and well-balanced in the mouth. Thanks to its successful marriage with our Grande Champagne eau-de-vie, the old white Pineau des Charentes rolls in the mouth thanks to its sugar and finesse. Our soil in Grande Champagne contributes to making this old Pineau des Charentes long in the mouth.
It can be a wonderful accompaniment for your foie gras and your cheeses of character (Fourme d’Ambert, Roquefort, Comté or Sheep’s cheese…).
