Aromatic power of fresh fruit, length in the mouth and unctuousness are the dignature of the Crème de Cassis de Bourgogne Double Crème Crème. Their blackcurrents, exclusively of the most noble of varieties, the Noir de Bourgogne, are chose with the greates of care. Grown on the slopes of the Burgundy Grands Crus areound Nuits-Saint-Georges, the fruits are harvested early on in summer when at full maturity.
Joseph Cartron, very attached to quality, to the local terroir and all its treasures, has patiently built up over several generations very strong connections with the local producers of the Noir du Bourgogne variety. These relationships are essential to preserve all the character of this variety with a low yield (roughly 3 to 4 tons per hectare) which required very caring attention from all the producers.
To the Eye: garnet-red, opaque, with a bluish rim, the sides of the glass turn violet.
To the Nose: intense 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 a great maturity but without excess. The finish is pure and of an eternal length.
