Chateau d'Orignac Pineau des Charentes

Availability: In stock

Beautiful amber colour with golden tints, it offers a powerful aromatic nose, with subtle hints of ripe yellow fruits like apricot, honey and raisins, spice and flowers, and oranges.  It is pleasantly sweet and refreshing with a great harmony between grape flavours and Cognac aromas.

Intense, elegant and distinguished, this Pineau is the inimitable meeting of roundness and elegance that makes it one of the most famous ambassadors of its appellation.

Always served chilled, the Pineau d’Orignac is not only delicious as an aperitif, it is also excellent with meals and desserts and very good with cheese too.

More information:

Chateau d'Orignac, a family home, has been producing grapes for at least 800years.
Over the successive centuries all its occupants have been deeply involved with the spirit of the property, which has given it the timeless andserene atmosphere it has today.

The first known records of the estate, indicates the year 1200, whenYthier d'Orignac horseman and squire of the neighbourhood married Sybille, Hélies's daughter, squire of Virollet.

The building took on its present day aspect when it was modernised by Monsieur de St-Légier in about 1840, and surrounded by formal avenue,gardens and woodlands in order to make a "amore agreable dwellingplace". This was according to records dated 1864.

During the last century, Monsieur Paul Gros acquired the property from the descendants of Baron de Saint Légier and gave the château and park, its modern day appearance.

Being an enterprising and innovative man, it was he who imported phylloxera resistant rootstocks from America, a disease that had all but destroyed French vineyards at the end of the 19th century. By grafting traditional French vines to their American imports, the crisis was averted.

In 1930, Helene Gros married a young naval officier, Hubert Meyer. They lived for many years in different towns, driven by the whims of the Navy, returning as often as possible to Orignac, their home.

At the end of the war, the man who was to become Admiral Meyer was placed in charge of negotiating the liberation of the ports of the Charente. A duty which he executed with all the rigour and exactitude of a sea-faring man, before going on to become Mayor of Royan during the sixties.

After his death, his daughter Odile managed the estate for 20 years.

Today Hervé Meyer, with the help of his son Yvan, a winemaker in Bordeaux, carries on the work of his predecessors with energy and enthusiasm to ensure that the products of Château d'Orignac remain the jewels of our terroir.
