Pineau Des Charentes & Cognac

 Pineau des Charentes legend

According to legend, during the harvest of 1589, a winemaker accidentally added grape must into a barrel that he believed was empty but in fact contained eau de vie. The mixture was duly returned to the cellars for fermentation. A few years later, the barrel was retrieved and was found to contain the drink that is now associated with the region of Charente. In 1921, a winemaker from Burie (Charente-Maritime), Emile Daud, commercialised the drink.


Everyone knows about Cognac. This XO is exceptional in quality and at the price very very reasonable.
