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.

750 ml bottle from Randall’s. Pours a pale, somewhat hazy yellow-gold with a head comprised of larger bubbles that dissipate immediately. Small rising carbonation bubbles proceed for quite a while and some yeast sediment gathers in the bottom of the glass. Aroma of pears and lots of them, lighter floral and earthy notes and just a hint of barnyard-type funk. Flavor of tart pears, lemons, floral notes, and white grape skins. Light-bodied, with a tart, dry, earthy mouthfeel and high, fizzy carbonation on the palate. Really satisfying on a warm summer night. Well-made. Hit the spot.

Christian Drouin shows again how to make the best cider. But the "real" one from apples is still the best.

BillKismet (3334) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 2, 2012
Chardonnay color with effervescent body feeding a frenzied, pond cover top. Bouquet races with tart pear, some wood, a bit of horsy character too. Stinging carbonation tart and dry body with pale essence of pearr. More pear character ekes across the palate after a few more sips. Sophisticated acidic balance.
