COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled only. Available in 330ml & 500ml bottles. Packaged as Aspall Dry Suffolk Cider for export.
Of mid straw-gold colour with a clean, light aroma of dessert apples, Premier Cru is dry, round and creamy on the palate with a good acid balance, pleasant soft tannins and an elegant, long finish.
A champagne taste that embodies the essence of an orchard, it has enticed an admiring audience who describe it as ‘pale, subtle and crisp, with a fresh aroma of English apples.’
An ideal partner for charcuterie and mild cheeses. Premier Cru also provides a very harmonious partnership with spicy foods, particularly curry.

MichaelAwesome (3919) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 25, 2014
Fine one with green apples in taste and aroma. Some sweetish moments which pep that one a bit up. Deep body, long lasting taste and pleasing aftertaste with a fine balanced sweetsour finish.

McTapps (3923) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 25, 2014
Bottle from Tesco in Ryde. Pours out in a deep golden colour with smooth body. Aroma of ripe apples and oak. Taste of red, ripe apples, ripe green apples, leaves, caramel and honey. Hints of oak. Flowery finish. Nice and enjoyable cider.

mR_fr0g (2921) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2014
Bottle at home. Very pale green / yellow/ petroleum coloured pour with a fleeting white effervescent head. Aroma is semi-sharp, some candy, some floral notes and bile. Some sharp lemon citrus in the nose as well. Flavour is sweet sharp fruit, apple, touch of sharpness. Palate is quite fizzy, semi-sweet, semi-crisp finish. Decent cider. Quite clean, maybe a little too clean for me.

allmyvinyl (3173) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 19, 2014
500ml bottle from Sainsbury’s. Pours pale yellow, no head. Aromas of... well... cider apples, perhaps get a hint of the champagne they are on about in the blurb, in a light, yeasty way. Taste is dry, tart but not sour. Slightly chewy on the finish.

Jesterdeal (1842) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - AUG 18, 2014
On tap as English Dry Draft Cider. Aroma is crisp granny smith apple and light biscuit. Pours clear blonde with good fizzy and no head. Taste is light apple, crisp biscuit, and a light malt finish. Clean and dry mouthfeel. A pleasure.

degbert (1104) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 12, 2014
Bottle. Pours a medium gold with a slight, white, quick-fading head. Nose has almost no apple to it; there’s rubber, latex, and medicinal notes. Rich and mellow on the tongue, with a small amount of residual sweetness. It has a nice buttery roundness to it that sticks around through the soft finish. Quite good, once one gets past the nose.

Holmen2 (788) - NORWAY - JUN 30, 2014

Shared 0,5 l bottle at Cardinal. Clear golden body with a white rim. Apples and champagne on the nose. Apples, sweet and crispy with a dry tongue in the end. Medium bodied.

Pale gold, white head. A bit yeasty and apple juice, hints of tartness and slightly dry. Not bad overall I suppose.
