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.
Saturated gold / pure amber colour. Almost bitter-sweet as gentian underscores the candied orange peel note. Second pass finds candied blood orange dominating. The light to medium bodied profile features fresh, juicy orange peel / pulp, becoming delicately bitter at the finish as citrus peel and gentian follow through to the fade.
