Fanny Fougerat Le Colibri Charmant Pineau
Fanny Fougerat Le Colibri Charmant Pineau is (as the name suggests) a charming Pineau produced from Ugni-Blanc grapes of the Fins Bois Cognac terroir. Having undergone its fortified wine process with the addition of Cognac at 71%, it’s a fresh and silky white Pineau with intense nuances of fresh fruits, quince and acacia honey. Enjoy its citrusy notes in the blissful sunshine in the company of guests – as this Pineau offers an experience worth sharing.
The house of Fanny Fougerat is a relatively unheard of brand because the family’s Cognacs used to be produced and sold to big Cognac houses rather than marketed under this artisan producers own name. However, Fanny Fougerat launched her own brand in recent years, with the first bottling released in November 2013. Strong values dedicated to craftsmanship, precision and finesse are at the heart of the brand, as Fanny Fougerat carries four generations of winemaking expertise with pride.
Presentation of the bottle
Bottled in a contemporary heavy-based bottle, the pale yellow nectar contained glows from inside out with golden hints and natural tones. The bottle’s modern aesthetic presents a stylish looking pineau that is sure to sit with elegance alongside other bottles in a spirits collection. Stamped on the front of the bottle is a beautiful sketch of a green hummingbird “le Colibri” in French – an ode to the bottle’s name and branding.
How to enjoy
Serve Fanny Fougerat Le Colibri Charmant Pineau fresh as an aperitif on the rocks or topped up with cold tonic water. It is the perfect tipple to enjoy alongside a cheese platter on a warm evening with guests.
About Fanny Fougerat Cognac
The house of Fanny Fougerat is named after its entrepreneurial creator, a young woman who comes from a long line of winemakers and distillers of Cognac. The brand only came into being a few years ago, with the first bottling of a Cognac to be sold under the Fanny Fougerat brand name being launched in November of 2013. However, the traditions and knowledge of this wine making family stretch back over four generations, during which time they sold their eaux-de-vie to the larger Cognac houses.
Fanny Fougerat Cognac is wonderfully 21st century, yet combined with the passion and knowledge of a truly traditional Cognac family. The resulting artisan products are fresh, vibrant, and of exceptional quality.
