Joseph Cartron Crème de Cassis de Bourgogne (Blackcurrant) Liqueur

SKU 789764331130

The aromatic power of fresh fruit and beautiful length on the palate are the signature characteristics of the Crème de Cassis de Bourgogne Double Crème by Joseph Cartron. Our blackcurrants, exclusively of the most noble of varieties, the Noir de Bourgogne, are chosen with the greatest of care.

Grown on the slopes of the Burgundy Grands Crus around Nuits-Saint-Georges, the fruits are harvested early in the summer when at full maturity. Joseph Cartron, being very attached to the quality of the local terroir, has spent generations building relationships with the local producers of Noir de Bourgogne blackcurrants. These relationships are essential to preserving the maximum character of this unique variety of fruit with a low yield (roughly 3 to 4 tons per hectare) which requires careful and constant care.

Tasting Notes
To the eye: garnet-red and opaque, violet colored legs in the glass. Brilliant intensity.

On the nose: powerful and dense. Fruit concentration is exceptional with a sensation of stewed fruit. It is fruit in its purest form.

In the mouth: full, round and generous with a suave, velvety and silky feeling. The fruit is of great maturity but without excess. The finish is pure and extensive with a soft mouthfeel.

Delicious straight on ice or added to sparkling wine. Adds a gourmet touch to cooking and desserts.
