Pineau des Charentes
2-3 years old
While our Pineau blanc is stored in bug oak barrels, our Pineau rouge is raised in topped-up demi-muids of 600 liters. How do we make our Pineau rouge? 1) grape destemming; 2) hot maceration of the berries during 3 to 6 hours long; 3) night settling; 4) alcohol addition. This explanation is not clear enough? please come over at the property during the grape harvest in September and Théophile will be pleased to show you these steps in action. On the nose and palate, blackcurrant and other red berries come up thanks to the 100% merlot grape juice.
