"Paradise in your glass"

We are in 1589, somewhere between Saintes and Cognac, in Charente, when a winemaker accidentally poured his grape must - to ferment it like used at the time - in a barrel that still contained some Cognac brandy.

Few years after, an abundant harvest forced him to use all of the barrels he had. When he opened this famous cask, he realized his mistake and wanted to taste its content. He was very surprised by the result ... What he thought was finding probably vinegar, turned out to be an extraordinary liqueur wine, the winemaker gave his name and the Pineau was born.

Pineau is therefore the fruit of a harmonious alliance between grape must (or juice) and Cognac. Pineau is qualified as a "mistelle", which means "mixed" or "mixed" wine.

To be Pineau, the law imposes a minimum aging including a part in oak barrels, which gives all its nobility to the product.

An "Old" Pineau will require an aging of at least 5 yearsin barrels, as for the mention "Extra-Old" or "Very Old", we speak of 10 years of minimum aging.

Finally, you should know that to be a Pineau producer, you must be a Cognac producer.

First of all, H Fils is a family history, a heritage, but it is mostly a tribute to our ancestor, Henri Fils, who bought the Charentais family estate in the middle of the 20th century.

H Fils is a close collaboration with some independent winemakers in the region. Today it is the ambition to bring up to date exceptional Pineaux who sleep in barrels when they deserve to have their place in great restaurants, beautiful hotels, or be worked by mixologist bartenders who will enhance it differently.

H Fils is also a collaboration with local service providers, located in Cognac, sharing the same ambition.

Finally, H Fils is the evidence of finding a rare, carefully selected Pineau in your glass.

PINEAU DES CHARENTES

LOT N°01

For the first edition, H Fils could only select the best.

From Grande Champagne, « Premier Cru » of Cognac, its Controlled Designation of Origin is a guarantee of quality but also authenticity.

This exceptional Pineau spent 19 years in oak casks. Born of an assembly of two very old pineaux, one from 1994, the other from 2000, it is unique in its conception.

Its aging allowed it to develop great aromatic qualities with notes of nuts, prune, honey and almond, which allows perfect associations with foie gras, cheese, but also all sorts of desserts thanks to its notes of mature grapes. Its long after taste makes it comparable to old Cognacs.

There is no precise moment to serve H Fils Pineau, fresh or on ice, pure, at the aperitif as at the end of a meal instead of a digestive, or through a cocktail.

Ideal with your cigar, it remains a universal product and will also seduce women thanks to its sweet side.

Logis de Montifaud

Logis de Montifaud is located in the heart of Grande Champagne, « Premier Cru » of Cognac.

Independent winemaker, its owner has an extraordinary know-how allowing him to produce one of the best pineau in the region. His farm, certified High Environmental Value (HVE), ensures a high quality production.

Antoine Duruflé

Born in 1990, Antoine Duruflé grew up in Paris. He studied in the famous illustration section of the Arts décoratifs in Strasbourg. However, his work is now closer to painting. Colour is an integral part of his pictorial identity.

This is how Antoine Duruflé painted the original Charentes landscape illustration on our case.
