Pineau des Charentes (Cognac Wine) is a Young Red aged(4-years) wine made from 1/4 cognac, 3/4 wine. The Grape variety is Ugni-Blanc, The Wine: Merlot-Cabernet Sauvignon.
This unique wine is served cold and makes a wonderful "aperitif and is an excellent addition/ingredient for many foods and cocktails. The Shelf Talker(the little post card you see in a liquor store describing the liquor product states)"Great with Blue Cheese." I personally love Blue Cheese., Chocolate,berries(all types) and desserts.
