Alcoholic drink from South-Western France (the Poitou Charentes region). It is made using rosé or white grape juice which is prevented from fermenting by adding Cognac (brandy) to the barrel. The finished aticle leaves a drink with between 16% and 22% abv (alcohol by volume) and a sweet but strong taste. Best served cold.
