Very fruity Pineau with a bouquet of Colombard grapes. Lightly filtered so as to keep the flavour of this old grape variety. A small deposit will form in the bottle after a while, but it doesn't alter the quality in any way.
Fruity aromas with a strong note of plums and dried apricots, slighty mentholated.
Beautiful freshness and full fruity flavor.
Roasted goose, Blue cheese from Auvergne. Pineau can bring delicacy to sauces and mussels recipes.
The editor in ” Larousse des vins “ : ” One of the best Pineau des Charentes is the one produced by the RIVIERE family on the Gâtinauds Domain, one of the oldest winegrowers in the region, specialized in Pineau. It is unrivalled in perfection with a sumptuous bouquet and a suave flavor, which merge in a dazzling and exquisite harmony and is sold on the market under the name of Pineau François 1er.
