- Flagship of the Massenez brand, Poire Prisoniere captivates both scent and taste senses. The pear shaped bottle includes a whole pear inside.
The bottle is attached to the pear tree in flower and left for the fruit to grow inside the bottle — it's detached once the fruit has ripened.
This fruit brandy is colorless and has a clean nose of fruity, fresh, and intense pear aromas. It is subtle and elegant on the palate, the pear flavor is intense and fresh. Mid-palate, the flavors evolve toward ripe fruits and finally end with a spicy note and hint of liquorice, typical of Poire Williams. A very harmonious brandy.
G.E. Massenez uses only choice, ripe, hand-picked fruit. Massenez eaux de vie are double distilled, thus intensifying the fruit character, the heart, in the resulting distillate. Approximately 20 pounds of fruit is required to produce one bottle of eau-de-vie. The final product is an impeccably clean, perfectly clear eighty-proof brandy, with a magnificent bouquet and intense taste of fruit. (from G.E. Massenez)
