Eau de Vigne

Category : Eau-de-vie de vin

Degree : 40 % vol.

Eau de Vigne is a blend of different unaged eaux-de-vie. It’s a throwback to the “blanche” (unaged grape eau-de-vie) tradition – once very much enjoyed on its own. The success of aged grape spirits such as Cognac and Armagnac have little by little pushed this noble white spirit out of the limelight. As experts in their field, Gilles Merlet and his two sons have blended eaux-de-vie from the family’s distillery with distillates from Gascony and other French regions of different grape varieties – mostly Ugni Blanc and Colombard – to offer the perfect combination: fruity and aromatic.

Service

Eau de Vigne is enjoyed straight as a digestif, on ice and in cocktails as the Vine Sour.

Tasting notes

Colour: Clear
Nose: Delicate, floral (violet, white flowers) and fruity (Mirabelle, pear).
Palate: Round, light, with a fine length. No sweetness, well-balanced with prevailing flavours of fruit.
