Grey Goose La Poire launched in the US on 1st February 2007. The distinctive bottle features an impressionist style painting of yellow pears in front of a blue vase of white lilies.
The essential oils used to flavour Grey Goose La Poire are made by two separate processes and then elements of the oils produced blended and filtered to make an essential oil. One is a distillate made from William pears from the Anjou region of western France. These are washed, crushed and macerated for two weeks. They are then distilled once in a copper pot still to extract their natural flavours.

Added to this distillate is the essence of pears obtained from concentrated juice. The pears are washed and pressed to extract their juice, which is then concentrated under vacuum. The third element is based on an infusion of William pear.

These three elements are blended together to mimic the taste and freshness of the original fruit. Finally this is blended with Grey Goose vodka.

Review and Tasting


Sampled on 07/12/2015

Appearance:

Crystal clear.

Aroma:

Very attractive pungent green apple skin, just sliced earthy pear skin and overripe pear flesh.

Taste:

Clean, crisp but ripe conference pear - more earthy thick skin than flesh with a touch of freshening lemon zest and black pepper.

Aftertaste:

Long clean pear finish with cracked black pepper and the merest hint of bitter almond.
