Outstanding fruit varieties, thoroughly transformed at accurate ripening
Alain realized that the characteristics of a variety, the production area, the rain, the tree cut, the level of a ripening and the balance between sugar and acidity would highly influence the aromatic profile of the final juice. This starting point has transformed into his philosophy, which has led him to faithfully engineer every single characteristic of the fruit: aroma, texture and flavour.
The key is to transform fresh fruits just after harvest. However, when it comes to some red fruits, it is difficult to gather identical quality batches; this kind of fruit is so fragile that in case they do not ripen properly they will jeopardize the quality of nectars. To avoid such issues, fruit growers freeze the whole matured fruit, which are then prepared all over the year.
As far as exotic fruits are concerned, the full ripe pulp extraction is carried out in the area where fruits are cultivated. They then transport the fruits unpasteurized but frozen, to keep both the quality and freshness of the aromas. This way of working is the most environment-friendly and also contributes to the development of local businesses.
