Distilleries et Domaines de Provence
Gentiane de Lure is one of the two oldest Distilleries et Domaines de Provence recipes. It's an aperitif made from Lubéron white wine, sweet fortified wine, alcohol, sugar, infusion and extracts of gentian roots, infusion of sweet and bitter oranges and a quinquina infusion.It has a gentle bitterness and the true root flavours and aromas of Provence. One of the oldest Distilleries et Domaine de Provence aperitifs, Gentiane de Lure is made for connoisseurs of gentian and lovers of all things bitter. Tasting Notes: Colour: The colour of Gentiane de Lure is accentuated, yellow with aged gold reflections. Nose: The vegetal nose of gentian roots is complicated by a citrus note as well as forest undergrowth and spice, which can be reminiscent of curry. Palate: In the mouth, the attack is fresh on the citrus, the end is more bitter on the gentian. The mouth intensity is powerful with a bitter and tonic taste. The product's taste lingers for a while.
