Chateau d’Orignac, a family estate steeped in the history of the region, has been producing grapes for at least 800 years. Over the successive centuries all its  occupants have been deeply involved with the spirit of the property, which has given it the timeless and serene atmosphere it has today.  Chateau d’Orignac produces a range of  Cognacs.

Tasting Notes

Beautiful amber colour with golden tints, it offers a powerful aromatic nose, with subtle hints of ripe yellow fruits like apricot, honey and raisins, spice and flowers, oranges! It is pleasantly sweet and refreshing with a great harmony between grape flavours and Cognac aromas. Intense, elegant and distinguished, this Pineau is the inimitable meeting of roundness and elegance that makes it one of the most famous ambassadors of its appellation. Always served chilled, the Pineau d’Orignac is not only delicious as an aperitif ; it is also excellent with meals, desserts and cheese. Will keep in fridge once opened as it is sweet with a high alcohol content of 18%.

Method

Pineau des Charentes is a French aperitif made in the departments of Charente and Dordogne in western France, near Bordeaux. It is a forified wine ( “mistelle or “vin de liqueur”) made from a blend of Cognac with lightly fermented Merlot & Cabernet Sauvignon grapes.  This one is a blend of 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon.  Cultivated, harvested, vinified, elaborated, aged and bottled at the Chateau. Patiently aged at least five years in our cellar in 225 L French oak casks.

    A gorgeous amber aperitif! There is a lot going on here – apricot, honeycomb, raisins – with very subtle oak adding to the allure. Ideal to accompany strong cheeses BEFORE or AFTER dinner.
