Pear Perfection

September 14, 2011

 If you would like to try something a bit different this week you should really give Poire Granit from Eric Bordelet a go. This delicious concoction made from pears (let me finish) is more comparable to a light sparkling wine. Think Moscato d’Asti. The fruit comes from ancient, biodynamically farmed orchards in Southern Normandy and is fermented to a bright, spicy sweetness. This perry is incredibly complex with hints of cinnamon and a velvety mousse. At only 4%, it is a delicious aperitif or wonderfully refreshing on its own.
