Vieux et Très Vieux White Pineau
Ageing: Vieux Pineau des Charentes blanc is oak aged for at least 5 years, while the Très Vieux ages for a minimum of 10 years.
Whether enjoyed with a starter or dessert, Pineau des Charentes is best served cold (8-10°C), in a tulip-shaped glass, to appreciate the wine’s full range of flavours and aromas. Young Pineau makes an ideal aperitif, whereas a Vieux or Très Vieux Pineau is a perfect way to round off your meal.
Pineau is also great in cocktails, blended with fruit juice, tonic water and a few mint leaves.
A Vieux or Très Vieux white Pineau goes exceptionally well with foie gras, blue cheese, and goat's cheese. Melon is also a much appreciated match with young white Pineau.
White Pineau The quality of the 1995 harvest warranted that it be put aside as a future vintage, after a year in new barrels the opportunity arose for a transfer to Sauternes barrels. These barrels, purchased from a prestigious Chateau, had previously contained a 1995 Sauterne. Once in place the Beaulon 1995 was left to age peacefully... and forgotten. In the Spring of 2009 it was tasted and the extent of its flavour and complexity was revealed. 92/100 Wine Guide 2010 Gilbert & Gaillard.Excl. Tax: €39.58 Incl. Tax: €47.50
