Cartron has been a family business since 1882, with strong roots in the town of Nuits-Saint-Georges at the heart of Burgundy’s cru vineyards. The soil of this region has been producing high quality fruit for centuries, which have been used in the production of Burgundy wines, or fruits to produce juices, liqueurs and fruit brandies. Careful choice of ingredients combined with specially created recipes is the heart of what makes Joseph Cartron's products special. Maceration and infusion techniques have been developed over the years so that individual production methods exist to make the most of every type of fruit and berry, giving the finest extraction and concentration of aroma for all the crèmes and liqueurs. Marcs, fines and aged plum brandy are distilled in stills over a century old then aged in both new and old oak barrels. Eau-de-vie is distilled with great care in old copper stills and aged in glass demi-johns under the roof tiles in the loft, further developing their flavour over the passing seasons. A stringent fruit selection, time and patience, natural ingredients and depth of flavour are just some of the criteria included in the Cartron charter of quality.
Old gold dress with orange nuances. Clarity and brightness. The nose displays a purity of fruit with good maturity. Beautiful notes of apricot kernels from the bark and keys brought by the Cognac. Notes of candied fruit. The power is in any restraint. The palate confirms the nose with a fineness of fruit. Discreet sweetness. The fruit is well married with cognac forming a nice balance.
