Description

A Well Aged Beauty: The André Petit Pineau Blanc

Harvesting the Pineau des Charentes requires a lot of attention, and André Petit Pineau des Charentes Blanc is a beautiful example of their craft. The white Pineau has the ability to age beautifully, and this one has been aged for over 30 years to produce subtle notes of grapefruit, vanilla and dry fruits. Andre Petit’s white Pineau wines are perfectly balanced between acidity, alcohol and sugar to age like a Sauternes wine.

This is also one of their oldest Pineau de Charentes. The grapes are harvested once they are over-ripened, and then the juice is then transformed into a Rassis Cognac. This is a regional special that must be savored at least once in your life. It is created using a combination of 70% Colombard grapes, and 30% Ugni Blanc white grapes from vines that reach over 30 years in age. It has also been grown in a particularly chalky soil.

Pineau des Charentes is a fortified wine made from slightly fermented and matured grape juice, with Cognac eau-de-vie then added. If you haven’t discovered it yet, this is your time to branch out into the other treasures from the Charente region. This Pineau has been produced following very old methods. The grapes are harvested by hand and distilled following the teachings of his grandparents.

In the distillation, they do not use any machines to separate alcohol - they trust their noses alone. This family producer are wine growers who develop a Pineau with a pronounced style following their feelings and tastes. The Berneuil estate is home to André Petit Cognac, and their savoir-faire has been passed down from father to son for generations. Delving deep into the stocks of his father and grandfather, Jacques Petit produces the finest Pineau and Cognac using centuries-old methodology.

About Andre Petit Cognac

This small family-run cognac producer from Berneuil insists that their cognac is not merely of standard quality. This can be validated by the fact that the Petit family works with traditional methods handed down form their grandparents and harvest the grapes manually. This is almost extinct in the cognac industry due to growing demand and the production of high quantities. André Petit came to some sort of fame in the industry by stopping their contract with Hennessy in the 1960s and deciding to produce themselves. Like many small producers from the Cognac region, they also specialize in the making of Pineau des Charentes.
