A blend of Cognac and juice from red grape varieties, aged for five years in oak casks. A fruity, full-flavoured aperitif to be enjoyed well chilled.
Origin: South-West France.
Owned by Yvan Meyer, Maison Sichel's Technical Director, Chateau d'Orignac has won accolades in France and throughout the world. It is made from two-thirds grape must (Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot) with one-third Cognac and takes almost 10 years to produce, which results in an intense, complex nose of peaches, apricots, honey, almonds and Cognac and an unforgettably smooth texture on the palate.
Chateau d'Orignac Pineau is made in a time-honored way, by carefully blending aged eau-de-vie and unfermented grape juice that comes from selected Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, picked when perfectly ripe. After blending, it is aged for a minimum of 5 years in oak casks, made by top coopers based in central France. Only after this extensive maturation period does Chateau d'Orignac Pineau des Charentes take on its full depth of flavour and balance.
Rich amber colour shot through with gold tints. Very intense, complex nose of apricots, honey, and raisins. Full and rich on the palate, with grape and Cognac flavours. At once intense and elegant. A remarkable and inimitable example of top quality Pineau des Charentes, justly deserving of its reputation. Should be served well chilled. A classic aperitif but also delicious with savoury dishes, desserts and cheese, such as Roquefort and mature Dutch Gouda
Once opened, Chateau d'Orignac Pineau des Charentes will keep very well for several weeks in the refrigerator.
A great Christmas wine.
