Pineau de Charentes Ruby - 5Y.O.

The Pineau des Charentes is a cognac-flavored liqueur made ​​by Château de Beaulon, which has its headquarters in St. Dizant-du-Gua in the Charente. This Pineau des Charentes stored 10 years in oak barrels, where it acquires its great flavor. The History of Pineau des Charentes: In 1859 a winery of the Charente Cognac accidentally mixed with fresh grape juice. The result of this mixture was the Pineau des Charentes, which was created after several years of barrel aging. You drink this brandy liqueur chilled as an aperitif, in cocktails or over ice.

Pineau des Charentes, (Pineau Charentais, or simply Pineau) is a regional French aperitif, made in the départements of Charente, Charente-Maritime and, to a much lesser extent, Dordogne in western France. While popular in within the region of production, it is less well known in other regions of France and somewhat uncommon abroad.

It is a fortified wine (mistelle or vin de liqueur), made from a blend of lightly fermented grape must and Cognac eau-de-vie.

Pineau is also found as a home-made product in the neighbouring Deux-Sèvres and Vendée départements. In the Vendée there is also made a similar drink called "Troussepinetteé, which is often flavoured with pine or fruits such as pear. Elsewhere in France analogous drinks are made (Macvin in Jura, Floc de Gascogne in the Armagnac area; there is also Pommeau, similarly made by blending apple juice and apple brandy), but these products are much less well known nationally and internationally than Pineau.
