COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

77ships (4298) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 17, 2014
Thanks to Kraddel! 75 cl. bottle split with Kraddel during the (Ice) Cider/Perry tasting @ Barely Legal Tasting Room. 2012 Vintage. Gorgeous looking bottle. Clear sparkling Champagne-like golden, thin white layer of bubbles only on top for head. Bubbles rising. Nose is sweeter than expected, apple sweetness, golden apples, faint rustic note, hay mixed in with tad of something reminiscent of sulphur for me. Taste is dry, tad boozy, surprisingly so for the ABV, light hay, barn, less sweet in taste than in nose, finish again sulphur-like note for me. Body is Cava-like in feel. Quite dry, pretty nice & enjoyable but doesn’t really justify the price-tag I feel, expected a bit more from this one. Nice all the same still.

_angst_ (3051) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 23, 2014
Bottle bought through Riktig Cider. Pours golden with a fizzy white head that leaves a small trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is fruity with varied smashed apples, starfruit, dried pineapple, moist hay, soil, leather, barnyard and lemon zest. Taste is tiny sweet, tiny sour and fruity with smashed apples, hay, dry soil, paper, unripe starfruit and hints of wood. Mouthfeel is crisp, dry, astringent and light bodied. Finish is fruity with apple must, hay, dry soil, unripe starfruit, paper and lemon zest. Bit too astringent and papery in the flavour.

Oerhört balanserad på alla parametrar. Syra och sötma i harmoni. Bästa cider jag varit med om. Underbar. Elegant!

2008 Bottle. Sweet apple nose, lightly spicy. Deep, dark golden, lace. Medium sweet, lots of apples, cinnamon, caramel. Soft carbonation. Quite nice, though not as complex and delicious as their poires. Still, good stuff.

MicroGrog (303) - FT: Stale Polotmavý in Queens, New York, USA - OCT 27, 2012
Bottle from Pasanella & Sons near the old Fulton Fish Market. What Fulton now lacks in fish, it make up for in pricey, locally grown hippie food. L09/2009 stamped on the cork. Served in a stange glass. Clear, amber gold body. Subtle activity. Smells of browned, bittersweet apples. Peppery greens, minerally sweat, fermenting grain. Has a somewhat unexpected English cider taste to it. Old, bittersweet apples. A little dirty/danky. Hard water. Envelope glue, with a lingering woody vanilla finish. Spritzy carbonation. Mellow, upfront lingering tartness, moderately low amount of acid. Talcy texture. A bit old maybe? Had higher expectations for this.
