In a nutshell: Dry and fruity Normandy Pear Cider from Comte Louis de Lauriston
The lowdown: Poiré, or pear cider is a traditional drink made in the Normandy countryside. This example from the cellars of Comte Louis de Lauriston is made from a blend of several varieties to achieve the right flavour profile. It's bottled part way through fermentation which results in a refreshing natural sparkle. Its intense and aromatic aromas lead onto a very flavoursome and refreshing palate that is both fruity and dry.
The cellars of Comte Louis de Lauriston where established in 1962 to handle the produce of the fruit growers of the local Domfrontais region of Normandy. The products they market range from Calvados and Pommeau to ciders and poirés.
