Description

The perfect, traditional Eau-de-Vie, this Massenez Vieille Prune is the result of combining the best selections of plums and aging them in a barrel.

The fruit used to create the G.E. Massenez Vieille Prune Eau-de-Vie are plump, round plums that come from orchards in Alsace and which mature in October.  

This strong Eau-de-Vie is removed from the still and then aged in oak barrels for several  years. It then softens to become an eau-de-vie with great finesse and subtlety.

Highly popular before the second world war, the Vieille Prune Eau-de-Vie is coming back even stronger today, seducing a growing number of connoisseurs both within France and abroad.

It is famous for its digestive qualities and can be sipped at the same temperature as a cup of tea.

 

Appearance: clear and colorless, sometimes with yellowish-green hues due to its aging; with a brilliance that is characteristic of Fruit Eaux-de-Vie. A supple and fluid eau-de-vie.


Nose: fruity, intense and with a distinct fragrance of ripe plums...


Palate: a direct and complex attack on the palate, between an almost floral freshness of the fruit and the intensity of the plum. A fleshy, round and generous Eau-de-Vie.
