Château d'Orignac Pineau
A sublime summer sip served cold, Pineau des Charentes is a fragrant, fruity fortified wine made with a blend of aged Cognac and the musts from Merlot and Cabernet grapes. After blending, it is aged in oak barrels for around four to five years. Enjoy as an aperitif, or as an after-dinner accompaniment to a cheese board.
I have had this a fair few times now and it is great and really versatile, it's great cold on a summers day or at room temperature as an aperitif in winter just as described in the blurb which is spot on. It's like a slightly sweet brandy, and has great dried fruit, honey, grape notes... it's awesome
