Emile Pernot Vieux Pontarlier 65 Absinthe 750ml

SKU #1044168 94 points Wine Enthusiast

 Beneath the perky lime-green color and a clean, bright licorice and mentholated lemon scent, this absinthe has soul. Surprisingly deep and musky star anise, Dutch licorice and sarsaparilla flavors fade to a citrus finish. Lovely with sugar too. A first-rate choice for an absinthe Frappe.  (12/ 2010)

K&L Notes

A Double Gold-award winner at the 2008 San Francisco World Sprits Competition, this also recieved five stars from critic F. Paul Pacult. This small batch absinthe is crafted on 100-plus-year-old alambic stills using instructions, techniques and equipment from the 19th century, as well as regionally grown wormwood, to create a historically accurate absinthe. Incredibly aromatic, with scents of Provenšal fennel and Spanish anise seed leading the charge, with alpine herb, menthol and spice notes coming through with just a little water. No sugar is added, making this a uniquely refreshing absinthe.

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
