COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
PEAR ICE WINE Pears are pressed at the beginning of the winter and their juice is stored in containers in the orchard that can withstand the winter. After several weeks, the juice that has been naturally concentrated by the cold is collected gradually over the course of the winter. Melliforous nose with beeswax and floral notes. Subtle mint flavours. The taste is full-bodied and decadent, the balance is perfect, and the sensation is fluid and airy. Perfect over ice after a meal or as an aperitif.

AlainG (1286) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 3, 2013
Édition 2010. Doré et limpide, une robe veloutée et liquoreuse glisse sur les parois du verre lorsqu’on remue le tout. Des arômes de poires, forcément, en émanent, accompagnées d’effluves florales et herbeuses, presque médicinales. Un goût, qui encore-là, tourne autour de la poire. C’est légèrement acidulé et ça picote l’intérieur des joues. On perçoit le côté mûr du fruit, dévoilant ainsi toutes les saveurs de sa palette; sucré et suret sur la langue. (600-050313)

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Bottle shared by Drew. Thanks! Pours a deep golden near-orange. Still and robust. Nose is subtly spicy. Acid and pear juice, light caramel & honey overall. On tasting, full bodied and rich. Moderate acidity and faint cinnamon spice. Floral notes with honey thoughts as well. Really balanced and decadent. Superb but a notch below the SE.

Lubiere (10139) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 18, 2012
A light golden perry with a smooth acidic pear pulp aroma, not bad. In mouth, a nice smooth raspy sweet pear puree, a bit astringent, alcohol warmth, nice and biting. Tasted at Bières des Neiges et Vins d’Hiver, Fev. 17 2012.

j12601 (6607) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAR 6, 2011
Bottle from our recent trip to Montreal. Pours a clean clear orange. Big vinous aromas right up front, sweet and bright, full of caramel and pears. A touch of alcohol on the nose as well. Big velvety mouthfeel, super smooth and sweet. Creamy and warm, lots of warm stewed pears and caramel syrup. Big warm alcohol and warm sweetness on the finish, some lingering spiciness on the gums. Quite nice, but a bit boozy.

JoeMcPhee (8510) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 24, 2010
Deep amber pour. The nose is rich and intensely sweet. Soft chewy sweetness and a kiss of dried fruit. Lots of vanilla notes and a soft tannic component as well that adds a little but of rustic earthiness. Honeyed fruit with a surprisingly bright acidity. Lots of pineapple and other stewed tropical fruits as well. Flavour has a little bit of peppery heat. Very complex cider. Warming brings up a little bit of light berryish character. Very unique and very delicious.

kramer (5034) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 9, 2010
Bottle, shared by JoeMcPhee. Pours a clear deep honey gold body, rather viscous and clingy on the glass leaving thick heavy legs. The nose is sweet and decadent, not all that far off from the few ice ciders that I’ve had. Deep honey and sugary notes with some caramelized pears, floral notes, and some slight wood notes. The flavor is sweet and bursting with honey and concentrated fruit. Some light wood, a touch of alcohol, lots of fruit skins, and some light tannins. Slightly sticky and mouth coating, this just feels awesome on the tongue. Minimal alcohol apparency. Delicious!
