PINEAU ABK6 | PINEAU DES CHARENTES | 10 Year Aged | Limited Supply
PINEAU DES CHARENTES
Perfect for pairing with a nice young goats cheese or a blue vein cheese.
Pineau is sweet, but not overly so. Its acidity is nicely balanced.
Pineau keeps for a while (in the fridge) once the bottle has been opened – unlike ports, which are more like wine in that they should be drunk quickly once opened.
You can serve it in a small glass over ice but I prefere it chilled from the fridge.
Golden colour. The first nose is marked by white-fleshed fruit such as pear and peach. This is followed by notes of fig, walnut, acacia honey and woody vanilla. After a gentle start, this ABK6 10 year old Pineau evolves towards notes of fruit jellies and particularly apricot before finishing with a lovely acidity. The long ageing is confirmed for the length of the finish.
Suppleness, roundness and elegance.
