Pineau des Charentes Gaec Brard Blanchard NV

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine from a wine merchant in Sussex for £10.Pineau des Charentes is a traditional blend of brandy and grape juice going back to the 16th century made in the Cognac area. The Blanchard family have been making this for several generations. They now have 20 hectares spread over a large area. which they have been farming organically since the 70's and make a range of wines, cognacs and grape juices. I started my bottle last night with a plate of bread and blue cheese and I did enjoy it. It is very sweet like honey or syrup. There is some apricot or vanilla like fruit there reminiscent of a Sauternes but I did notice the alcohol as it is 17% abv.
