White gold in color, the nose of this pineau is lively and complex, with aromas of dried fruit; notes of pear - Flambee and honey persist. It is wonderfully balanced on the palate as pear and honey flavors blossom from the start. The finish shines with invigorating complex tannins and hints of candied grapefruit.
The Pasquet Cognac vineyard has been family owned since 1730. Jean-Luc Pasquet and his wife, Marie-Françoise, had been growing fruit conventionally on their 7 hectare estate until 1995 when they began to explore organic winemaking. In 1998, they were granted "Agricul ture Biologique” certification. JLP is now spear-headed by Jean-Luc's son, Jean who has apprenticed under his father since childhood.
Jean does not chill-filter or add caramel or sugar to his cognac and only uses native yeast to start fermentation. He ferments his wine sur-lie and distils his cognac sur-lie. Their cognac epitomizes handmade, single vineyard cognac that expresses, uninterrupted and unadorned the majestic terroir of Grande Champagne.
