Pineau des Charentes, 'Pineau Park', Cognac Park

Cognac Park is the flagship brand of Distillerie Tessendier, a Cognac house begun in 1880. Today, in its fourth generation of ownership, the Tessendier Estate maintains vineyards of more than 60 acres in the heart of one of the most exclusive growing areas of Cognac: The Borderies. Brothers and Master Blenders, Lilian and Jérôme Tessendier, expertly compose their blends with extreme attention to detail at their distillery, located in the town of Jarnac. The wines used in the distillation of Cognac Park come from four crus within the Cognac region: Grand Champagne, Petite Champagne, Borderies, and Fins Bois. Each year, the Tessendier family distills its Cognacs from the 3000 hectoliters of wine produced on its own estate in Borderies and buys another 40,000 hl from winemakers in the other crus, maintaining relationships that span several generations.

The grapes are pressed immediately after harvest and blended with the eau-de-vie. After resting for 6 months, the Pineau is aged in oak. Aged between 2–4 years, the length of aging fluctuates depending on how the flavors mature. 17% ABV
