Eric Bordelet, Poire Granite 2020
Poire Granit Eric Bordelet Pear Perry is a remarkable and complex poire made from three hundred years old trees. Chalky flinty mouthfeel, fresh herbs and mint, joined by notes of pear, quince, pineapple and caramel. The rare cider with ageing potential.
Harvested by hand, into wire baskets and then placed into paloxs. Due to the large number of varieties, fruits are selected from September through to December according to ripeness. To create the final balance, each variety of fruit is processed individually: it is assembled, coarsely ground, gently pressed and the juice is racked and settled. Ancestral fermentation in vats and then bottling takes place over several weeks, even months depending on the vintage, with more or less residual natural sugars (fructose) so no need to add any sucrose. Sulphite in different forms (mineral or solution) is added. A total of SO² of between 50mg/l et 80mg/l depending on the vintage.
