Malternative Belgium Pineau des Charentes #2 La Patisserie Rouge (Lot 66)
This Pineau des Charentes was Made by the Raffaud family from Ugni Blanc grapes in Borderies (Pineau des Charentes), France.
Aged in French oak barrels for 55 years and bottled at 18% by Malternative Belgium in 2022 (10/2022).
Pieter from Malternative Belgium writes about this Pineau des Charentes: "The rural commune of Saint-Sulpice-de-Cognac is centrally located in the smallest of the 6 Crus: Borderies. With around 4,000 hectares of vineyards, this Cru accounts for only 5% of all Cognac. The Soil here is mainly flint clay on a layer of chalk.The Raffaud family estate is surrounded by their own vineyards.A lone passer-by would not suspect that behind the yellow and red facades was a cognac distillery, but as soon as you step through the gates enters, the family breathes cognac. Michel and Annie enjoy their retirement but the family continues the activities. The domain "La Maison Rouge" sells its young eau de vie only to the big brands, never under its own name "Raffaud". After an extremely pleasant period of getting to know each other, we were able to bottle Annie and Michel's dowry in '66. A Cognac and Pineau des Charentes that breathe character. This cellar was not large with less than 15 cognac barrels, but sometimes you don't need more to fill one to find exceptional spirits. A Pineau des Charentes that is over 50 years old is a rarity that you will rarely find. A 50+ year old Pineau des Charentes with this level of complexity, rich flavors and refinement is even more unique! Sante!"
