Details

Poire Granit Eric Bordelet Pear Perry is a remarkable and complex poiré made from three hundred years old trees. The nose expresses stony notes (chalk,flint), fresh herbs and mint, joined by notes of pear, quince, pineapple and caramel. The palate offers acidulated apple flavours. Good ageing potential.


In 1992, Eric Bordelet,previously sommelier at Arpege Alain Passard's Restaurant in Paris took over the production of this family property in Normandy. Believing that cider and Poiré should be produced like wine he grows more than 20 varieties of apple and 15 varieties of pear. Connoisseurs admire his entirely artisan and apothecary style of working. His range includes several products, all worth the detour. He has dubbed his ciders"Sydre"/"Sidre", the former spelling of those words. The property is situated on schiste, sedimentary rock dating back to the Précambrian era. This has produced silt and clayey-silt soil. Its 15 hectares property is divided up into 3 hectares 40-50 years old fruit orchard, a 7 hectares vineyard orchard planted in 1992 and trellised and 5 hectares pears orchard dating back to 1992. 20 varieties of apple at least (sweet,bitter,sour),15 varieties of pear. All cultivated according to bio-dynamic agricultural practices, as they are better adapted to the production quality fruit.
