3 Fonteinen Pruim Belle De Louvain (season 21|22) Blend No. 19
Bottling date: 19/01/2022
For this Pruim, we macerated Belle De Louvain plums, an old local variety of kwets or Prune plums. We hand-picked them in the summer of 2021 in the orchard of Willy - a retired school teacher - located at the Wijngaardberg in the province of Vlaams-Brabant.Maceration took over five months and we used two- and three-year old lambics only. We blended with more old lambics and a small part of young lambics to reach a fruit intensity of 340 grams of used plums per litre of finished Pruim. The weighted average age of this blend upon bottling mounts up to 25 months.
3 Fonteinen Pruim is the slow and all-natural maceration of hand-picked whole plums or zwetschgen on traditional lambic. No addition of juices, syrups or artificial sweeteners. Unfiltered. Unpasteurised.
