Aromatic power of the fresh fruit, length in the mouth and unctuousness are the signature of the Crème de Cassis de Bourgogne Double Crème Joseph Cartron. Our blackcurrants, exclusively of the most noble of varieties, the Noir de Bourgogne, are chosen with the greatest of care. Grown on the slopes of the Burgundy Grands Crus around Nuits-Saint-Georges, the fruits are harvested early on in summer when at full maturity. Joseph Cartron, very attached to quality, to the local terroir and all its treasures, has patiently built up over several generations very strong connections with the local producers of the Noir de Bourgogne variety. These relationships are essential to preserve all the character of this variety with a low yield (roughly 3 to 4 tons per hectare) which requires very caring attention from all the producers.
