Williams Pear Eau-de-Vie from the MASSENEZ distillery is outstandingly refined, concentrated and balanced.
An intense emotion true to the personality of the original fruit.

Color:
  • Clear, colorless, with characteristic fruit Eaux-de-Vies brilliance.
  • A supple, fluid Eau-de-Vie.

Nose:

  • Clean and typical of Williams Pear, with no strange notes.
  • The intense nose is an indication of the quality of the selection of the original fruits and delicate distillation.
  • Very fruity, long lasting and truly inviting bouquet.

Palate:

  • The rounded ‘’ grain ‘’ of the Pear is very noticeable.
  • In the mouth, a very intense floral note gives great freshness.
  • Intense fruity note, with an initial perception of fresh fruit overlaid by ripe fruit and marmalade or jam.
  • Very prominent spicy endnote with a hint of Liquorice typical of williams pear.

Massenez Poire Prisonniere

This is an outstanding, if expensive, pear eau-de-vie. It is not any form of Calvados (French apple liquor), despite what the website's product title says. On the box label they recommend refilling the bottle once the imprisoned pear starts to be exposed to air (that is, after you've drunk enough to un-submerge it). Once this happens, I plan to buy a bottle of "regular" Massenez pear eau-de-vie (listed on the website as "G. E. Massenez Poire Williams Pear Brandy"), do a taste test, and then use the regular to refill the Poire Prisonniere as needed.
