Cognac Wine: Reviseur Pineau des Charantes

Reviseur Pineau des Charentes is a French fortified white wine, “Vin de Liqueur”, from the Petite Champagne region. It gained AOC status in 1945.

It is comprised of  Cognac (eaux-de-vie) and blended with slightly fermented grape must from the current vintage. This Vieux (old) Pineau is aged at the estate for at least 5-years in French Oak barrels, which gives the wine more complexity.

This moderately sweet French wine can be used as an aperitif or with fresh fruit after dinner. It is served chilled in a tulip shaped glass. It is also used as an ingredient in various cocktails. (Alc. 17% by Vol.)

Tasting Notes: An elegant wine with fruit flavors and hints of chestnuts, dried fruits and gingerbread notes.

“Bright brilliant gold color. Delicate, floral, fruity jammy aromas of caramelized nuts, dried fruits, and delicate spice with a satiny, crisp, fruity sweet light-to-medium body and a polished, interesting, medium-length tasted almonds, peach, golden raisins, and honey finish. A delicious, juicy, and refreshing aperitif.”
