Estève Vieux Blanc Pineau
The Estève Vieux Blanc Pineau comprises Ugni Blanc wine blended with Petite Champagne eaux-de-vie, delivering an intense nose of bitter orange, plum and honey. Ample and powerful, it develops some generous notes of rancio towards the end, reflecting the time spent in oak casks; only Pineau that has been matured for at least five years can be labelled with the ‘Vieux’ classification.
Maison Estève is currently run by Philippe, a 7th generation Master Blender who operates 49 hectares of vineyards located in Petite Champagne, covering several municipalities of the Charente and Charente-Maritime regions. Alongside creating some outstanding Cognacs, he also prides himself on bottling well-aged Pineau des Charentes that can easily compete with the best Sauternes, as evidenced by the extensive list of awards this Vieux Blanc Pineau has received.
