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.

goodbyeohio (36) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 23, 2014
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.

One of the best ciders/perries I’ve ever tried with a lot of complexity and high drinkability to boot. I’d happily pay the price again.

hackobock (3672) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 1, 2016
October 2, 2015. Bottle, vintage 2013.
Clear pale golden with a small quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is fresh sweet mashed pears, a touch of fruit skin notes, hints of vanilla and a touch of herbs. Taste is light tart and medium sweet. Finish is sweet and fruity with lots of pears, some citrusy and apple skin tartness, slight minerals and oak. Light bodied, slight creamy, a bit fizzy carbonation.
Very nice, distinct pear notes with some refreshing tart notes in the finish.

hopscotch (10707) - 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!
