CHARTREUSE Genepi des Peres Chartreux 40%

Liqueurs Herbales, France / Rhone-alpes, 70cl, Ref: 54251

Genepi is a general term given by residents from the Alps to several aromatic Alpine plants. For mountaineers, it is a tradition to harvest these flowers in August and macerate them in alcohol. Each mountaineer has his own “secret” recipe for Génépi. The Chartreuse Monks, who have been distillers for four centuries, have their own secret Génépi recipe, derived from several macerations and distillations. This unique process allows the Alpine plants to truly explode with flavour.

Tasting note

  • Nose : fin, précis. Les cendres et le citron (vert) escortent des notes de fumée et de tourbe. Cette dernière se révèle végétale et herbacée, plutôt sèche. Il évolue sur le pamplemousse (jaune), la réglisse et l'orge en cours de fermentation. Le caoutchouc et le goudron sont également de la partie (avec délicatesse).
  • Palate : riche, onctueuse. Beaucoup plus grasse que le nez ne le laissait supposer, elle se montre iodée et salée. Beaucoup plus présente, la tourbe lui donne de l'impulsion. A vrai dire, elle gagne en tout: en finesse, en densité, en épaisseur. Des notes de bâton de réglisse et de poisson fumé font saliver. Superbe.
  • Overall : détendue, étonnamment sereine pour son âge. A la manière d'un vieux loup de mer, c'est la pipe à la bouche qu'elle regarde l'océan. Pulpeuse, juteuse avec ses notes de poire mûre, elle se prolonge sur le trèfle "à quatre feuilles", cela va sans dire.
The brand

The brand

This high-proof vegetal liqueur is made by Carthusian monks in Isère, on the edge of the Chartreuse mountain range. In 1605, a French marshal gave the monks a mysterious manuscript with the recipe for a medicinal preparation. Highly complex, the formula for this ‘elixir of life’ was not produced until the middle of the 18th century. Traditionally green, Chartreuse can also be yellow or white. Only two monks know the secret ingredients of this liqueur and continue to oversee its production. Production of this liqueur has supported the monastic community for over 250 years, enabling it to uphold its vow of poverty.
