Pineau des Charentes is the vin de liqueur, or mistelle, of the Cognac region, a blend of one-quarter Cognac to three-quarters freshly squeezed grape juice, creating a winning combination of fresh fruit and brandy warmth with a gentle spirit-kick.
The style most commonly experienced is pale gold, sweet and floral, reminiscent of tinned-peach syrup, rendered uncloying by a spirited kick. In older examples, imaginatively labelled Vieux (at least 5 years old) and Très Vieux (at least 10 years old), the spirit mellows and richer prune, cinnamon and almond flavours develop. As it matures, white Pineau turns a dark golden colour with amber highlights.
