COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pear is a fruit of patience! A pear tree needs 50 years to reach its maturity but will live for more than 200 years. This unique blend of Plant de Blanc, Muscadet, Tricotin, Avenelle and Poire de Grise varieties gives our Poire its typical balance. A delicate marriage between crisp acidity and discreet sweetness.
Its typical lightness and elegance make Poire a traditional drink in Normandy. Its fine bubbles are naturally produced in the bottle. Poire is both refreshing and festive. You will enjoy Poire served chilled in a champagne flute, as an aperitif. It also goes beautifully with shellfish, salads, steamed fish, goat cheese or fruits sorbet.

2007 Cork Date; Sampled November 2010
Pours into my Lost Abbey Teku glass with a frothy, quickly dissapearing, pale white head. The Perry is a pale-gold hue (looks like a white wine). Smells of very fresh pears with a definite floral aspect and a mix of sweet and tart.

Bracingly cold and fizzy, this is definitely sweet, but not aggressively so (which is good). The pear flavor is not quite as expressive as it was in the nose, but is still quite floral, quite fruity and with a nice, even, soft acidity. The perry finishes with a carbonic acid bite and an at times wine like floral character; said more truthfully though it is a white-wine that sometimes finishes with a pear note. Texture is quite nice as it is very light and prickly from the expressive carbonation. As this warms there is almost a butter-poached pear like thing going on here. As it warms some mineral character starts to become more noticeable in the finish and it even seems to pick up a touch more body.

This is definitely nice, definitely enjoyable, though my wife thinks it would be better if it was even more dry. I don’t know though, the bit of sweetness that is here helps to accentuate the pear flavors quite well, though it still doesn’t quite get to the level of the expressive nose. For some reason I really want to try a spontaneously fermented Perry now, a bit of funk here would work really well. I really wish I could better describe Ciders and Perry, I am definitely lacking in my palate’s ability to dissect these two drinks.

TheBeerGod (5045) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAY 4, 2010
Bottle - 750mL - corked and caged. Downright explosive! This has been refrigerated for well over one week. I hadn’t reached the last twist on the cage when the corked popped and the contents spewed violently. Thankfully, I opened this right next tot he sink so I didn’t make much of a mess. Soft blond/straw in color with a tall, fizzy, white head. Aroma is sweet pears, hints of apple skin, pear juice and sugary notes. Taste is slightly unripened pear, pear juice, seltzer water and apple skins. The carbonation is extremely bubbly and effervescent. Overall, this has a very light and crisp body with moderate dryness. Ends with more pear, pear juice and apple skins. There is a carbonated water like note as well.

jeff789 (1404) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 23, 2009
Aroma of tart pear peaches apples... Very Champagne like in appearance... Explodes in your mouth... Effervescent... The overcarbonation detracts greatly from what seemingly is a wonderful flavor profile underneath... The pear flavor is very noticeable underneath... Not sweet, somewhat tart....

oh6gdx (20004) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 31, 2009
Bottled. Cork came out flying like mad, luckily the glass was ready and closeby, so not too much spilled. Pale yellow colour with small sparking white head that disappears fast. Aroma is pear, some mild blue cheese and some mild green apple like notes. Flavour is quite much the same with some slight wood to it as well. Quite tart and dry-palated perry.
