Tasting Notes

This blend of Cognac and grape juice (from Cognac) is aged for 18 months, with 12 of those spent in oak casks. The resulting flavor has notes of peaches, plums, prunes, and toasted nuts. Pineau is often kept cold in fridges throughout the region and is served on hot days when guests arrive, much like rosé in Provence. Because of its sweetness, this also pairs tremendously well with cheese plates, but its also great mixed with brown spirits like rum, rye, and bourbon as a substitute for vermouth.

Staff Pick Notes

Stop! Buy this now! Whatever you thought you were looking for when you came here, you've just found it! This is the answer to all your prayers and the beautiful blissful dream that you woke up from but can't quite remember. Cognac and grape juice(unfermented wine) are combined and aged in a barrel for 12 months. What you get is something akin to tawny port but lighter and super yummy. Caramel nutty goodness goes down easy with no cloying syrup to muck up your day (or night). Did I mention it's AMAZING with salty cheese? Get a bottle, you deserve it - it has been a long, hard year after all.
