Tasting notes

The best caviars are distinguished by their aroma, their feel on the palate, and of course their flavor.

Aroma: Persephone caviars are clean and fresh on the nose, with a whisper of the ocean. 

Flavor: First impressions of Persephone caviar are buttery and warm, with rich umami and gentle saltiness. As it lingers on the palate, the true osetra character shines through: autumnal and sensual, with a suggestion of dark forests and warm furs. It ends with a clean marine finish, both soft and arresting- like the first breeze that hints of a storm at sea.

Mouthfeel: Texture and size of the beads vary naturally from mother fish to mother fish, and are a natural expression of each individual. Persephone prefers to express this natural character rather than use additives or pasteurization to create an artificial "bouncy" mouthfeel. Our caviars are naturally cured, preserving their lush, tender impression on the palate.
