2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, 75cl corked. Itís quite fizzy in the glass, clear, golden in color and some bubbles on top. The aroma has a faint woody touch, or maybe itís more apple cores. It gives signals of being acidic, but itís not very acidic when tasting it. Mostly apples, apple cores and with a little touch of something reminiscent of sulphur. A quite decent cider, but a bit weak and boring. 120124

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
750 ml "champagne" bottle, as "Comte Louis de Lauriston Cidre Brut de Normandie", from Vinmonopolet, bestillingsutvalget. Christian Drouin is not mentioned on the label, but I assume he is the distributor. ABV is 4.8%. Golden colour, pours very fizzy with a huge but short-lived white head. Strong aroma of oxidised cider apples and sulphites. The flavour is medium sweet with notes of cider apples and sulphites. Slightly astringent finish. Nice enough to drink.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle (Rimi, Tallinn)
Pushes the cork out and opens with quite a pop. Oooh, that cork smells
lovely - pure apples. And indeed, on pouring, thereís a glorious appley
aroma. In the mouth thereís almost brandy-like aromas, not alcohol, but
the old barrels aspect. Crisp carbonation. Lovely normandy brut, classic
for the style. Fruitiness from the aroma has aged in the taste. The
finish is semi-dry, and I wish it lasted longer.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2012 Bottled. A golden cider with a huge cream colored head. The aroma is sweet with notes of wood and apples, and so is the flavor, leading to an acidic finish. Nice.
