Notes of fresh cherries and raspberries as well as Cognac are combined with a lovely cassis-like quality from 5 years of aging. Pineau Rouge can be enjoyed on ice with an orange peel or used in cocktails calling for sweet vermouth.

Pineau des Charentes is a Vin de Liqueur created by combining unfermented grape juice with finished Cognac, for a spirit that is just under 20% alcohol with a touch of fruitiness. Although the minimum age requirement for Pineau des Charentes is one year, Cognac-Legend A.E. Dor ages theirs 5 years.
Maison A.E. Dor was founded in 1858 as a family-run Cognac house dedicated to producing some of the world’s finest distilled spirits. Through generations, this has remained the work of this firm, currently run by Pierre-Antoine Rivière, who succeeded his father, Jacques, 10 years ago. Experience, talent, dedication and the gift of time now contribute to this offering of Cognacs ranging from the smooth Selection VS to the more than century-old #11. While the family vineyards are given over to the production of an amazing range of Pineau des Charentes, the Rivière’s are master blenders and purchase grapes for distillation or young Cognac for ageing and blending in their cellars. At every level of quality, VS, VSOP, XO, the Cognacs of A.E. Dor are aged well beyond their peers (if "peers" is even the right word), bringing awesome depths to the nose and palate along with a remarkably mellow character.
