Vieux Pineau des Charentes

Vieux Pineau des Charentes, Raymond Ragnaud

Raymond Ragnaud Pineau des Charentes is made in the traditional manner, by combining 2/3 unfermented grape must (containing no alcohol) with 1/3 young Cognac at about 60% alcohol. The strength of the alcohol prevents the yeasts and sugar from fermenting, stabilizing the wine. This mixture then goes into foudre to age for over four years, over which time the pineau picks up aromas that include notes of figs, pears, and nuts. The sugar from the grape must makes this sweet, while the acidity and alcohol never permits it from becoming cloying. 18% ABV
