Drouineau Pineau des Charentes 75cl


Drouineau Pineau des Charentes is made from a blend of Ugni Blanc, Montils and Colombard grape varieties. Standard Pineau des Charentes Blanc must be aged for at least 18 months in oak barrels, for Drouineau it is over 2 years. The resulting drink is between 16 and 22% ABV (but in commercial practice nearly always 17%) and is traditionally a deep gold in colour, but colours and qualities vary from vineyard to vineyard, depending on the lie of the land, the soil composition and the grape used. The taste is predominantly sweet, but is balanced by both acidity and the increased level of alcohol.

ABV: 17.0%
