These waters have a high-mineral content and salinity. They are full-bodied and have a velvety, sometimes almost an oily texture. They are appreciated for their “gustatory” qualities and due to the sense of “nourishment” associated with their taste profile. They have a strong personality and are mostly consumed on their own.
Bold & Distinctive
Contrex is highly distinctive, even though it emerges from the ground only a few kilometres away from its neighbour Vittel. Its pronounced, flavoursome taste gives it a unique personality in the mouth. Its creamy, almost nourishing texture, emphasises its character. It makes no secret of its mineral content!
Master Tseng's tasting notes :
“It has a chalky, kaolin, lightly iodised nose. Contrex is unquestionably a water with a strong personality, with very overt aromas and an obviously high magnesium and calcium content. Its thick, dense texture gives a sensation of particles in suspension in the mouth. On tasting, it has salty, bitter notes with a lingering hint of bitterness in the finish”.
