COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Granit" définit la roche où les racines du poirier plonge dans les failles de granit. Le système racinaire du poirier en profondeur marque sa minéralité. Cet aspect est davantage présent sur cette cuvée issue d’arbres très anciens. Assemblage d’un maximum de variétés dans le respect du millésime.

The nose expresses stony notes(chalk,flint), fresh herbs and mint,joined by notes of pear,quince, pine apple and caramel.The palate offers acidulated apple flavours. A remarkable and complex poiré made from three hundred years old trees.Good ageing potential.

Pours a straw yellow with plentiful champagne-like carbonation. a hint of sulfur in the aroma gives way to pear juice, acid, vanilla, and baby powder. to say this is crisp and refreshing is an understatement. the juice itself is juicy, there are true notes of pear here and the finish is long and creamy for something so light in ABV. the acidity balances the sweetness perfectly, which is something you don’t often find in perry. this was described to me as the best fermented fruit product in the world, and while i don’t agree, it’s tough to find a flaw in this beverage. i guess my only ’complaint’ is that i wish the famed granite-laced soil expressed itself in a way that offered a unique, new flavor. regardless, this is a great glass of perry.

hopscotch (10557) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 11, 2016
Bottle... Crystal clear straw-colored pour with sparse, weak legs. The aroma features fresh applesauce, pear puree and hint of caramel. Very fruity. Light-bodied with champagne-like carbonation. The flavor is sour and dry - loads of pear and applesauce here. Plenty of fruitiness and tartness in the lingering finish to satisfy any cider, perry or lambic-head. Top notch perry, this is! Big THANKS to HonusWagner for sharing this gem with the south Florida crew!

Maakun (3397) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAY 27, 2016
Bottle at THT May thanks to kermis. Clear very light straw with short lasting fizzy white head. Sour pear, smoked herbs, white grapes, sour gooseberries, there’s a light smoky sulphur note running through that does taste like flint. Pear skin, grainy pear. Over medium sour, very light sweet and dusty bitter. Light bodied with fizzy carbonation.

ctipping (1108) - Florida, USA - DEC 14, 2015
750 mL bottle. Clear and very pale yellow. Smells of a rich caramel that is really stunning. Light and almost unidentifiable herbal aroma. Some apples. The taste is a little more what I expected. Pear/apple cider flavor. Less of that caramel, which is disappointing. Still nice, though. Crisp carbonation. Excellent.

Bottle at Colony Club’s ANXO event. Clear bright golden color, sparkling. Very funky overripe pear aroma. Taste starts sweet then mellows, with light tartness and a dry finish. Delicious.

gEUS (1696) - Linden, BELGIUM - JUL 26, 2015
Bottle at tasting. Pours clear lightly golden yellow, no head. Incredible aromas of fresh pear, some subte apple and flower aromas. Drinks very well through the light body, nice carbonation and a super fruity flavour. First Perry, this stuff is really good (side remark: this is closer to wine than to beer).
