pours almost clear bright yellow with a small white cap, healthy bubbles. woodsy honeyed apples, soft tannins - obvious calvados; leaves, lots of flowers, yeast, minerals. bright carbonation, light to medium body - oily; semi-sweet and woody lightly tannic finish. semi-sweet oaky cider with lots of farmhouse character, which is domaine familial dupont’s signature. much enjoyed!

Clear golden color, a bit of off-white head. Aroma has intense fermented apples and some oak. Taste is really sweet at first with ripe apples, honey and some apple pits bitterness on the finish. Overall it’s quite sweet, not really easy to drink but quite tasty.

Golden color with hardly any head. Aroma is sweet natural apples, wood, caramel, some funk. Taste is sweet apples, also tartness, wood, some tannins, some calvados hotness im the back, but very balanced. Effervescent carbonation. Sweet, but in a natural way, and awesomely so. Still, it’s quite sweet, not for everybody.

Bautiful gold without real head. Aroma is natural apple, sweet and sour. Taste is sweet and sour, comparable with honey, very nice. Medium carbonated, very apple juicy finish. This tastes like a very good mix of apple juice and water. A little dryness later. This is good.

Robe dorée de fines bulles viennent perler en surface.
Le nez s’ouvre sur des arômes de comptée, de bois et de calva.
La bouche est douce et délicate, les notes de calva sont plus marquées.
La finale est légèrement sèche et élégante.
Une petite merveille
