Produced by Marnier Lapostolle, better known for Grand Marnier, the quality of this pineau is made possible by the house's huge cognac reserves, base in the heart of the cognac region (Château de Bourg-Charente) and management of casks, which starts by the company purchasing oak trees.
Produced by blending partially fermented grape juice with lightly aged cognac and then maturing the blend in oak casks for at least three years.
