Cidrerie Daufresne Poiré Perry


Normandy, France

Poiré (perry) — also known as “Norman champagne” is made from small, round and juicy pears. It contains more fruitsugars than apples, including sorbitol, an unfermentable sugar that leaves the perry slightly sweet. Similar to champagne, most perries are naturally carbonated in the bottle. In May, the decades old orchards looks like a vast white forest. The pears (Plant de Blanc, Fausset, Branche, Gros Gontier) are harvested manually after fallen naturally in September & October. The fresh fruit is washed and sorted by hand, and directed towards the press which allows a continuous pressing.

Alcohol: 4.0 %
RS: 50.0 g/L


A perry pear is gritty, tannic and acidic, which makes it somewhat similar to a cider apple. But that is where the similarities end. Perry pear tannins tend to be rounder than those found in cider apples, and the pears used for perry have less malic acid than cider apples, resulting in a beverage that is less tart and more delicate. The Daufresne Poiré offers clear, sparkling and persistent effervescence and aromas. Tastes of fresh pear fruit, hints of melon and citrus, natural sediments in glass, rustic with a clean pure sweetness, balanced by refreshing acidity.
