Emblematic of Maison Massenez, La Poire Prisonnière fascinates, both for its taste and olfactory qualities and for its pear-shaped bottle, trapping the pear inside. The bottle is simply placed on the pear tree as it blossoms ... then the fruit develops inside the bottle, until maturity or the fruit and the bottle are delicately detached.
Vinification and maturation
The pears are put in large vats for fermentation and the sugar contained is transformed into alcohol. The pears are then distilled in copper stills. After distillation, the Poire Williams brandy is obtained.
Colorless, with a typical brilliance of fruit eaux-de-vie. The nose is frank, and sustained, without any foreign note. The pear is revealed from the first nose. A fruity, fresh and intense nose. In the mouth, we find finesse and elegance. The flavor of the pear is intense and brings great freshness on the palate, then evolves into ripe fruit.
A spicy finish with a note of liquorice very typical of the Williams Pear. A very harmonious eau-de-vie.
