Gautier Panatela Pineau
Gautier Panatela Pineau des Charente unveils a blissful blend of pressed grape juice - each having been aged for a minimum of 5 years. An award-winning Pineau of extraordinary complexity, boasting generous flavors of candied fruit, honey, and walnut.
The house of Gautier targets both professional connoisseurs and aficionados as well as younger consumers that like to experiment with Cognac when mixing up stylish new cocktails. The brand stands out as one of the few Cognac and Pineau houses to characterize its Cognacs, through the positioning of its cellars, which are within close proximity to the River Osme. The Gautier estate’s unique location in the heart of the “Little Venice” of Charente, provides a special humidity and temperature of the cellars, allowing Gautier products to be recognizable in taste.
Presentation of the bottle
Dressed in a very slim and narrow set bottle, Panatela is sure to stand out amongst other spirits and wines in a collection. Revealing a strong decadent glow, the full-bodied Pineau inside shines through and inevitably draws the eye even closer. To prove authenticity, each bottle (375 ml) is individually numbered.
How to enjoy
To be enjoyed neat or with tonic water as an aperitif. Pair with foie gras or any chocolate dessert for a memorable tasting experience and indulgence of the senses. Finish with a fine cigar of your choice and soak up the lingering aromas even further.

My favorite Brand
I had my first taste of this several years ago at a restaurant in Texas and have been in love with it ever since. It's about time for me to order some more bottles. It is my favorite.
