Absinthe La Pontissalienne comes from the Guy distillery, with a long history of absinthe making.

With medium anise and a more complex and powerful wormwood profile than Absinthe Francois Guy, made by the same distillery. The Pontissalienne name comes from an old brand of absinthe from before the ban on absinthe in France. The famous Vichet distillery made an absinthe under the same name.

This absinthe won a gold medal at the 2011 Absinthiades competition.

Serving Suggestion

- At first, try La Pontissalienne with half a piece of sugar. Then add more or less according to taste.

- For one measure of absinthe (3cl), add 2 to 5 measures of chilled water.

La meilleur de chez guy . Plus complexe en effet que l'autre absinthe . J'aimais bien aussi celle que la maison avais sorti pour le centenaire.

4 Apr 2019

La Pontissalienne, ein antiker Absinth von Pontarlier, gewidmet der Definition der Frauen von Pontarlier (Übersetzung: Frau von Pontarlier).
Gut Louche, mit der Zugabe von Wasser fängt es gut an und wird matt.
Es gibt eine gute bittere aromatische Note und einen guten, nichtinvasiven Alkoholgehalt.
Guter Absinth.

Heute bewerte ich den ABSINTHE LA PONTISSALIENNE. Der Franzose der Brennerei Guy kommt in einer zarten, optisch hübschen Flasche. Entgegen der Abbildung ist diese nicht klar, sondern dunkelgrün. Das Etikett ist wirklich sehr hübsch, ein echter Eye-Catcher im Regal.
Die Farbe des Tropfens kommt auf dem Bild hier gut rüber, ein kräftiges – aber noch nicht gesättigtes grün. Sehr hübsch aber auf jeden Fall. Er riecht pur relativ neutral, leicht fruchtig aber auch derb nach Alkohol. Lässt mehr als 56% vermuten. Geschmacklich ist er pur gerade noch zu genießen. Es dominiert eine klare alkoholische Schärfe und eine etwas überdurchschnittliche Bitterkeit im Abgang. Muss man nicht pur trinken, geht aber. Die Zugabe von kalten Wasser startet ein schönes, öliges, schlieriges Feuerwerk – wie bei niedrigprozentrigen Absinthes üblich auch sehr schnell startend aber doch langanhaltend. Übrig bleibt ein fast blickdichter, zart grüner Nebel. So soll das sein.
Verdünnt, etwa 1:3, riecht man die fruchtigen Noten besser. Es ist kein super frischer Duft, aber auch nicht muffig, modrig oder erdig. Gutes Mittelfeld.
Geschmacklich jetzt um einiges besser offeriert der Pontissalienne eine starke und süße Seite. Anis sticht zügig hervor, gefolgt von einer angenehmen Süßen und geringen bitteren Note. Könnte für mich noch weniger Bitter sein, aber ist völlig im Rahmen. Es verbleibt im Mund eine zarte sommerliche Frische, vermutlich vom Wermut gezaubert. Es ist nicht diese penetrantere Fenchelsüße (die ich im Übrigen sehr mag ;) ). Der Absinthe ist wirklich sehr gut abgestimmt, was ihn aber auch etwas vorhersehbar macht. Wie ein VW Golf, niemals schlecht, aber irgendwie auch nicht mehr. Was einzig positiv hervorsticht, auch nach einigen Sekunden bis zu 1 oder zwei Minuten bitzelt es zart im Mund.
Preis Leistung ist sehr gut, ich empfehle den Absinthe für Einsteiger auf Grund der gut gewahrten Dreifaltigkeit und einer schönen Balance. 5 Sterne kann ich nicht geben, aber solide 4 auf jeden Fall.
Insgesamt sehr gut, es fehlt nur etwas die Überraschung.
Beste Grüße und viel Spaß beim genießen

Picked a bottle of this up from Amsterdam to bring back with me to the uk... it has a nice balance and was happy with it, I will be buying again.

Dieser Absinthe ist zurecht ein Goldmedaillengewinner!
Es stellt sich sehr schnell eine dichte Trübung ein.
Der Geschmack ist einfach hervorragend und auf alle Fälle eine Empfehlung wert.

I'd put this right at the top of the mid-shelf absinthes. Its fresh anise flavor is much more balanced by wormwood than the standard Francois Guy offering. This is my go-to daily drinker as well as what I like to use to introduce a person to absinthe in general.

10 Dec 2012

Bought this in Amsterdam to bring back to the States. Really the best I've ever had. Smooth, enjoyable.
