Owned by Yvan Meyer, Château d'Orignac has won accolades in France and throughout the world. It is made from two-thirds grape must (Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot) with one-third Cognac and takes almost 10 years to produce, which results in an intense, complex nose of peaches, apricots, honey, almonds and Cognac and an unforgettably smooth texture on the palate. A classic French dish would be to halve a ripe melon, scoop out the pips and pour in a generous slug of Pineau. Delicious and decadent.
