Chateau d'Orignac, a family home, has been involved in the production of grapes for at least 800 years. Today Hervé Meyer, with the help of his son Yvan, a winemaker in Bordeaux, carries on the work of his many predecessors with energy and enthusiasm to ensure that the products of Château d'Orignac reflect the quality of the terroir. To preserve and offer future generations the quality and authenticity of their terroir, they practice sustainable agriculture.
This Pineau des Charantes is cultivated, harvested, vinified, elaborated, aged and bottled at the Chateau. Grape varieties : 60% Merlot and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon. This Pineau de Charentes is aged for at least five years at Chateau D'Orignac's cellar in 225 litre French oak casks.
Tasting notes of the Winemaker Yvan Meyer:
"Beautiful amber colour with golden tints, it offers a powerful aromatic nose, with subtle hints of ripe yellow fruits like apricot, honey and raisins, spice and flowers, oranges!
It is pleasantly sweet and refreshing with a great harmony between grape flavours and Cognac aromas.
Intense, elegant and distinguished, this Pineau is the inimitable meeting of roundness and elegance that makes it one of the most famous ambassadors of its appellation.
Always served chilled, the Pineau d’Orignac is not only delicious as an aperitif ; it is also excellent with meals and desserts and very good with cheese too."
