The family Lheraud, with their beautiful estate in the Petite Champagne region of Cognac, have a rich wine-making history dating back centuries. Well-known for the rare and vintage cognacs they produce, Lheraud also produce some exemplary Armagnac and 'Pineau des Charentes'.
Pineau des Charentes is a regional French aperitif, made in the area of Charente. While popular within the region of production, it is less well known in other regions of France and somewhat uncommon abroad.
This fortified wine (also known as 'mistelle' or 'vin de liqueur'), is made from either fresh, un-fermented grape juice or a blend of lightly fermented grape must, to which a Cognac 'eau-de-vie' (a distilled beverage made from fruit) is added and then matured.
Aged for 15 years this 'mistelle' has an intense colour with beautiful pink and gold highlights. With a rich sweet, velvety fruit flavour and a slight, but well balanced, acidity, this aperitif has a delightful aroma with pronounced notes of nuts, honey and cinnamon.
It is recommended to drink as an aperitif, or as part of a cocktail. This combines perfectly with seafood, blue cheese or foie-gras.
