Joseph Cartron has been a family run business since 1882, with strong roots in the town of Nuits-Saint-Georges at the heart of Burgundy’s cru vineyards. The soil of this region has been producing high quality fruit for centuries, which for many years have been used in the production of Burgundy wines. Cartron specialises in the production of liqueurs, crèmes, ratafia, marc, eaux de vie, with a team of craftsmen using age old recipes.
With an exceptional aromatic finesse and an everlasting length in the mouth, the Joseph Cartron Eau-de-Vie de Poire Williams des Monts de la Côte d’Or, is reserved for connoisseurs and pear lovers. Grown in the heart of the best Burgundy terroir in the vineyards of the Hautes Côtes de Beaune in the village of Orches, the orchard where their Williams pears are grown.
The unequalled quality of this eau-de-vie is guaranteed by the use of the best fruits, those of the first pick put aside for table use added to those of the second pick put aside for transformation. Cultivation in full wind on non-irrigated slopes ensures a strong concentration in sugar and a specific taste.
Tasting Notes: The climate and the terroir bring freshness, concentration and an exceptional aromatic finesse. The quality of the pear is present. The second wave brings an elegant fruity freshness underlined by the purity of the fruit. In the mouth, the texture is oily, silky and suave, built on the finesse and elegance of the product.
