Description

Maxime Trijol Pineau des Charentes Rouge, although labelled on the back as a Pineau des Charentes Rosé, is very much a red Pineau des Charentes.

It is made by Cognac Maxime Trijol who also make some amazing Cognacs. The Trijol family originally settled as growers and distillers in St Martial Sur Né, in the heart of the Cognac region. Their first still was installed in November 1859, and since then they have built on their expertise as growers and distillers, becoming professional distillers in 1962. Most Cognac producers also make a Pineau des Charentes, it is one of the most popular aperitifs in France. It is made by blending unfermented grape must and young Cognac.

Pineau des Charentes Rouge is a less common type of Pineau des Charentes, the the white version is more commonly seen, and is usually made from Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes and must be aged for at least 14 months in oak barrels. Obviously, because this is made from red grapes the tasting profile is quite different from white Pineau des Charentes. The colours can vary a lot from a medium rosé colour up to a fairly dark, crimson red.
