Pours really clear golden with nice bubble streams. Nose is of barnyard, light horse and oak. Taste is where calvados is more apparent: moderately sweet apples with some spirits and good oak. Light funk. Body is moderate, carbonation too. Quite tannic with some drying qualities. A pretty good farmhouse cider that I wish would showcase more of the calvados.

Bottle at Salon piva. Golden hazy color. Aroma of apples, pineapples and tropical fruits, oak, hints of spirit. Taste is complexed, balanced, tuned, sweet, light sour. Nice

Heller apfeliger, sehr würziger Cider. Feine Karbonisierung, holzig, die Apfelnoten sind fein und dunkel. Spritzig, süß karamellig, geringe Herbe. Steigend holzig, Nuancen von Vanille und Johannisbeere. Lang und weich ausgleitend. 9/13/12/13/11/13

Holy crap what a cider. Bottle from 2012. Cork shot into the ceiling. bright golden straw colour with heavy streams of carbonation and a spritz of bubbles on the surface. The nose is woody, a tad smoky with tons of toffee, caramel and vanilla. Rich apple and caramel notes with brown sugar and a heavy woody profile. Touch of sweetness throughout with a lingering wood flavour. Holy crap is that good.

(75 cl. Lot: 41132. 7.5%) La robe or scintille et les bulles qui montent à la surface finissent par m’hypnotiser. Le nez s’ouvre sur des parfums de cidre campagnard et de vin blanc. Il est également marqué par des notes boisés et des notes de fruits jaunes. La bouche est élégante mais pas transcendante avec des notes de calvados bien placées dans cette structure fermière élaborée par les pommes et leurs levures indigènes. En bouche, le pétillement naturel flatte chacune de mes papilles. La finale sèche n’est pas intense mais bien raffinée. Il y a un art derrière ce cidre vieilli.

Bottle. Thanks! A: Cloudy gold, huge white head that dies down in short order. N: Caramel, apple, some toffee, brown sugar, and brandy. T: Sweet and tart. Big on the sweet. M: Light body, no alcohol, crisp carbonation. O: A fine way to cap off the night. I enjoyed it as a change of pace, and I assume I would enjoy it just as much were it on its own.

750 ml bottle. Pours a clear yellow color with a small white head. A big sweet fruity apple nose. The flavor is unique: dusty, funky, ginger, sweet apple. Insanely dry finish. Awesome.

Bottle at home, shared with the misses. Pours intense golden yellow. Fine carbonation. Nice evolved apple aroma, even with strong sweet white wine flavours. This cide really is a refined piece of art. Thick sweet mouthfeel, nice fruit sour in the bridge. This is a real threat, thanks to Ronald for this kind and truly special gift!

Bottle (750 ml) at home. 2013 bottle. Thanks to KCherney for this one! Split 4-ways. Almost clear bright golden with a small bubbly ring of white foam. Aroma was a bit dull at first with only some generic apple fruitiness but after 15+ minutes it opened up a lot letting the farmy horsey character out along Calvados spiciness and tingling alcohol. Taste is bright from the start with gentle tartness, a bit of residual sugar but nothing too much, lots of horsey character, the calvados spiciness is much more present here but not the boozy aspect. Body is medium. Carbonation is moderate. Mouthfeel is a bit tannic. Finish is dry, but much less than the Bordatto ciders we had just before. A very interesting product. I was quite disappointed by the aroma at first, but the taste was great and ultimately the aroma became much better once it opened up. Really good.

Delar en flaska med Isabel en torsdag. Från ett släpp på sb nyligen. Jäklar! Här har vi en delikat cider. Doften är stiltypiskt fransk med övermogna äpplen som dominerar. Men här finns så mycket mer jag sällan upplevt i en cider tidigare, även från franska premiumgrejer. Kunde inte pricka in att den legat på calvadosfat, men nu när man vet om det var det lättare att känna. Perfekt ton med subtil calvados lyfter ytterligare en nivå. Jag är imponerad. Bästa cider jag någonsin har druckit. (Glöm för helsike inte att köpa fler!!)
