Le nom "Argelette" a toujours été utilisé par les anciens, définissant la nature du terrain composé de petites et de vieilles pierres où les pommiers poussent avec difficulté, donnant de petites pommes au goût sauvage, beaucoup plus concentré. Cette cuvée Prestige est issue d’un triage rigoureux de 19 variétés de pommes soigneusement sélectionnées (40% amères, 40% douces et 20% acidulées). Ce cidre issu d’une technique de macération prolongée ancestrale, détient une trentaine de g/L de sucre résiduel. On obtient ainsi un cidre de grande qualité, plus vineux et gras, plus long en bouche et surtout très parfumé pouvant ainsi s’associer à de grands plats culinaires (crustacés, plats épicés, fromage de Normandie...) Bouteille ventrue bouchée, muselée champenoise, trempée dans une cire fine.

gEUS (1583) - Linden, BELGIUM - JUL 27, 2015
Bottle kindly shared by Pieter at a tasting. Pours light golden yellow, no head but very vivid carbonation. Fine apples aroma, a bit mineral, and almost with sweet white wine notes (Quarts de Chaumes). Fine bubbled carbonation in the body, incredible fruit flavours of fresh apple, some peach, elderberry. A bit tart and sour as well. Very nice.

czar (6211) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 19, 2015
bottle shared by mathieuc, thanks buddy! pours unclear bright gold, amber tint, with a bubbly reviving white cap. sweet caramelized apples, akin to many ice ciders - which is rare if not fortunately odd for a 4.5% cider; cotton-candy, dust, red apple meat, floral honey, yeast. prickly to average carbonation, light body; very lightly astringent, sweetish and woodsy-chalky-apple finish. nice.

mathieuc (2483) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 16, 2015
Pours a clear golden with some nice bubble streams that produce a white foamy ring on top. Nose is of apples and lightly sweet. Taste is on the contrary lightly tart and loaded with fresh apples. Slight carbonic bite. Body is medium, carbonation high and the 30 g/L sugar is surprisingly not felt that much. Must be the refreshing acidity. Anyway, good but not great.

tom10101 (4234) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 16, 2015
Bottle (750 ml). Shared by mathieuc, thanks! Split 5-ways.

Appearance: Clear bright golden with a small bubbly ring of white foam and little to no lacing.

Aroma: Caramelized apples, sugary notes, pears, a bit of crème brûlée and light rubber presence.

Taste: Moderately sweet (less than what expected considering the sugary notes) and slightly acidic. Caramelized apples, caramel and CO².

Palate: Medium body. Medium to lively carbonation. Moderately dry finish.

Overall: Decent / good sparkling cider. The CO² taste is a bit too much present for my liking but otherwise it’s a fine drink.

Ysok02 (531) - MOns, BELGIUM - JAN 27, 2015
Moins complexe que le poiré mais plus opulent c’est un cidre de “4 heures” à boire avec un cake aux pommes, d’ici 1-2 ans.
