Golden Eight is offered for tasting in a shaded color with blushing warm gold reflections, a divine promise of a very great Liqueur…
First of all, as soon as the bottle is opened, a powerful and warm fragrance of perfectly ripe Williams pear is released with a shimmer of warm and gourmet notes encouraging tasting.
So… it’s a sweet symphony, generous and sensual, of all the aromas of the Pear between fruit just picked, almost candied and marmalade before giving birth delicately to vanilla then caramelized notes vanishing in light cascades of ‘Eau-de-Vie which gave birth to it: a Poire Massenez Eau-de-Vie more than 8 years old.
A Unique and exclusive signature of Maison Massenez since 1870, the production of which is proudly and jealously kept secret from master liquorists to master liquorists.
Best enjoyed chilled or over ice.
The tasting note of the jury of Sommeliers International, the Magazine, on the occasion of a Tasting Prestige, Vinexpo Tokyo, in 2016:
Colour: golden, caramel reflection.
Nose: flattering, very pleasant, expressive, very open on the fruit.
Palate: all in generosity, well balanced, round.
Lively attack, crunchy fruit, persistent freshness. Fruity structure. Round evolution. Nice persistence. Very harmonious finish, an enchantment for the palate.
