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.

Pours a near clear champagne color with tiny fizzy bubbles and frothy white head. Aroma is a bit bretty, wax, dust, cows milk washed cheese, interesting. Flavor is a bit flat, some acidity, bit of bitty and cheese rind, some pear flavor. I like it.

zach8270 (3357) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JUL 21, 2012
(bottle - 330 ml) Very light gold pour with a good amount of carbonation. Crisp and tart apple aroma that’s not very overpowering and definitely not overly sweet. Apple and tartness at the start of the flavor. Very dry and almost champagne-like at the finish. Very effervescent and refreshing.

dimenhetfield (2487) - , Florida, USA - MAY 5, 2012
Bottle poured into glass. Compared side by side with the Demi-sec. This was a tad dryer then most ciders I’ve had but other then that it’s really just your standard run of the mill type of cider.

Argonian (262) - Athens, GREECE - MAY 4, 2012
Bottle. Pours a yellow body, with almost no head, but leaves a fair lace. Faint apple aroma. Tastes like white wine, very similar to a champagne, the alcohol is very intense, and I really struggle to find the apples. Very carbonated, low body, not my style.

Bart (2941) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 11, 2012
Draft in a pub in London. Very light hazy darker blond coloured with lots of carbonation and no head. Rather fruity green apple sourness within the aroma. Medium sprankling palate. Finish is sweet-fruity sour with a nice fizzz; Ok cider.
