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.

Acknud (1081) - Morganfield, Kentucky, USA - MAY 18, 2008
Pours like a good sparkling wine. Light golden color with a very foaming head. Aroma is of pears (I guess). My pear nose is not that sophisticated. Taste is refreshing. Taste of pears. Acid in nature. Served in a Champagne flute.

BlackDonald (1126) - Gulf Shores, Alabama, USA - MAY 13, 2008
I found this to be quite refreshign and enjoyable. Has the effervescence of a spakrling wine, with a ripe white peaches and pears in the nose. Has a bit too much acid, but very refreshing and clean in the finish. A great food pairing accompaniment.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 13, 2008
2005: Exploding cork pours super carbonated clear light yellow...smell is lightly sweet with pear, with a lot of funky cheese rind...very nice...taste is lightly sweet with a very lively champagne-ish mouthfeel...some faint barnyard cheese flavors too...sticky overly sweet finish...almost artificial seeming...

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - APR 4, 2008
Corked 750ml bottle from 2006 and served in Flute glasses. Pours straw hued with a very fizzy head and minimal lace. The aroma has notes of sweet and tart pear, a bit of husky and musty vapours, and just a quick dash of some sea salt. The taste follows suit with acidic pear twangy and a musty earthy quality in support. A nice dry almost woody like finish. The mouth feel very effervescent, much like a quality champagne which makes this a very refreshing beverage. I had a bit of mild English cheddar with the second glass and it worked well together. I say that it is easy for someone to dismiss this but I found it quite enjoyable and something I would buy again without reservation.

SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - MAR 17, 2008
2005. The most pale tint of yellow pour, similar in color to sake. Pours with a soda-like head- small, dense, and fast- including the light spray from carbonation bubbles popping. The bubbles are like a reverse rain storm, flooding towards the top of the glass, slowing only after a number of minutes. Aroma is juicy, sweet, acidic, tart, musty, and lightly bitter. Flavor is a lot softer than the aroma suggested- juicy pears, lightly bitter skins, mild musty earth (or bark), and finishing very dry with some acidic, lightly tart pear candy. Highly carbonated body accentuates musty, bitter, and acidic flavors and downplays the sweetness. Weight is medium to medium/light. Excellent aperitif or refreshing warm weather beverage.

Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - SEP 30, 2007
750ml bottle. Smells like a fresh pear, lightly tart with some funkiness. Hazy silver-yellow color, lots of bubbles and fruity sediment. Tart, dry, acidic flavor, not strongly fruity, almost lightly abrasive in feel, some lemon and grapefruit notes amidst the pear. Ultra-light body, highly effervescent on the palate. Interesting and odd stuff for sure.
