Eric Bordelet Sparkling Poire Authentique

This Sparkling Pear Cider pours light golden and possess perfect clarity, having the look of a middled aged white burgundy. In the glass a good quarter inch mouse forms and when quiet the small to medium sized bubbles begin to rise in the same manner as good champagne. The nose is pear first and pear primarily, but it also possesses hints of metal and yeast with a nice round thyme-like character underneath. It delivers an intriguing and interesting set of aromas that, again, are driven by pear. But once you put this poire in your mouth you’ll agree that’s exactly where it needs to be and where it shines.
