François Thibault created La Poire specifically to reflect the taste and freshness of an Anjou pear—a classic flavour of French cuisine. The result is flavoured vodka alive with the aromas of fresh pears and a crisp, smooth taste.
The complex pear flavours found in GREY GOOSE La Poire stem from a rich medley of fresh pears selected by the Maître de Chai—creating a taste that features the mellow flavours and subtle sweetness of the Anjou Pear.
Like the soft winter wheat used to make GREY GOOSE vodka, the Anjou Pear is cultivated in France and is an essential ingredient in classic French pastries and desserts like the tarte aux poires.

•Palate: Crisp, round and light with the gentle sweetness of fresh juicy pears. When chilled the texture become richer giving the spirit a deeper, velvety feel
•Finish: Long and round, with the slightest hint of bitter almond hidden in the lingering finish
