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.

75cl bottle from madeincalvados.com. Golden color with thin head. Carbonation is medium but balanced. Acidity is quite balanced also. Aroma is simply pear but it’s nice. This is globally nice and refreshing.

Shared with Travlr and my wife; courtesy of Travlr. Aroma of dried apricot, white raisin and slightly sweet pear. Appearance is clear gold with no head. Flavor matched the nose; spritzy and refreshing, maybe a bit sweet. Palate is light, bubbly and lively. An elegant drink.

Pale golden with a small white head, and lively carbonation. Aroma dominated by pear, with a funky note of leather. Sweetish, but tart flavour with some funky notes and a hint of cellar.

Bottle. Yeasty, slightly over ripe pear aroma. Cloudy yellow with a fizzy, quickly dissipating white head, suspended yeast sediment. Sweet tart ripe pear, pear skin flavor with a dry finish. Light spritzy body, champagne-like. Overall, I found it quite enjoyable, and not too sweet.

yngwie (17078) - 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

TAR (2776) - Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina, USA - OCT 7, 2012
375 mL bottle: Nearly colorless liquid splashed with yellow. Noisy, dying head. Waxy, perfumey aromas on elegant display, with hints of mushroom, lime zest, fresh cut pineapple, artichoke and uncured hay. Pleasingly musty but not overly wild or rustic. Hugely effervescent and gassy mouthfeel. Prickly lime zest and pineapple acids very gently buckle the cheeks before converging with a pronounced vitaminlike dullness. Pear skin offers a snappiness which coincides nicely with the bracing dryness. Adequate level of residuals keep things from becoming stark, though the absence of phenols causes things to be two-dimensional. Pear character is not particularly ripe or explosive either, which reinforces the yearning for greater depth and vibrancy. Closes with a peppery, zesty dryness laced with succulent pear juice remnants and a healthy dose of musty minerals. The framework is definitely here, but ultimately it comes across as a bit too "simple". And there is also an unpleasant moldy/uncured hay character that is somewhat off-putting. Those folks looking for something bretty and barnyardy, might want to look elsewhere. Just okay.
