The bottle is simply placed on the pear tree when it blooms… then the fruit develops inside the bottle until maturity or the fruit and the bottle are delicately detached.
Nose: Persistent, clean, exuberant, of good density.
Palate: Complex, harmonious, delicate, all round. On pleasant notes of fresh fruit. Well balanced, opulent.
Long and tasty finish, on the fruit.
