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.

yespr (32001) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - FEB 19, 2009
75 cL bottle. Pours pale light greenish with a fully gone and initially fizzy head. Dry and herbal pear aroma. Fizzy mouthfeel. Phenolic and slight mouldy. Dry and citric finish. Strange and interesting.

Ungstrup (29846) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 1, 2009

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 3, 2009
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of yespr/Ungstrup. Clear golden with a vague tint of green. Subdued aroma, a whiff of green apples perhaos. Light body with an extreme carbonation and vague, tart pear accents. Finishes dry with a subdued tartness. Surprisingly poor. 190209

oh6gdx (20902) - 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.

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 24, 2012
Bottle, 75cl corked. It’s an almost clear perry, very pale yellow in color and with some white bubbles at finish. The aroma has more orchard than pear, but there’s sure some pear present. A bit on the sugary side maybe. It’s quite acidic and tart, but there’s still a good dash of residual sugars left. Pears, orchard and some fruitsugar in the flavor. Medium body fullness. pleasant carbonation. An easy drinkable and tasteful perry sure worth a revisit. 121124

Oakes (12788) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 31, 2009
Cloudy pale yellow et tres mousseaux. Fresh pear and light sulphur on this one. Highly carbonated, carrying a firm minerally liquid across the palate. Spicy, with fresh pear and fairly good rustic yeast character. Quality stuff.
