When he married Geneviève Régeasse after the war, Christian Vincent lacked money, yet he had ideas. Benefiting from his experience in blending cognacs, the young man decided to pay tribute to his wife in the least expected way. He imagined for her, a tailor-made drink, a subtle balance between tradition and modernity, sweetness and character. Blackthorn grew near his vineyards and provided him with an ideal starting material. From his own family’s experience, he knew well the organoleptic qualities of the tree , as well as its medicinal power, which made the use, of it an obvious choice. He thus created the first veine. The recipe was left to the next generations who have perpetuated the tradition, until now as a reminder of this first gesture of love.
