COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cette cuvée, sélectionnée depuis 1997 par l’Elysée et très appréciée de notre ancien président Jacques Chirac, est avant tout une cuvée de dessert, idéale pour accompagner les tartes aux fruits. Cependant, comme une vendange tardive, avec un sucre résiduel élevé, elle conviendra également à l’apéritif ou autour d’une bonne galette des rois.
(les pommes de cette cuvée sont conservées près de 3 mois sous abri. Ratatinées au moment du pressage, le taux de sucre du moût au pressoir est exceptionnellement élevé). Dégré d’alcool faible d’environ 3%, Garde 3 à 5 ans. Récolte 2010 épuisée, prochaine récolte dispo début Avril 2012 !

Bottle sample. Poured clear orange copper color with a minimal fizzy head that lasted with good legs. Medium sweet apple and fruit aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and good legs. Medium sweet apple and yeast flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid drinkable complex cider.

750ml bottle, shared by brandon. Clear golden color. Few chunks of yeast in the bottle. Good thin white head on the surface that retains well, leaves loose lace. Good fruity fresh juicy apple aroma. Soft, lighter carbonation, dry finish. Moderate sweet taste, light tart. Has a nice juicy red apple flavor, the kind of apple I prefer. Excellent cider.

750mL c&c 2012 ed. Clear bottle. $25 from P St Whole Foods DC. Cork rockets out of the bottle, CAUTION!! Pours with excessive carbonation, tepid pour yields an IPA like head that really never fully dissipates. Easily the best appearance for any cider I’ve ever seen. Glowing, full haze peach color. Leaves some lacing. Seriously? Nose is really getting there for premier Norman ciders like Ferme du Lavoir, Cave de Mirande, and Benoit et Sylvie Noël. Aroma is pure starfruit and peach juice, similar to peach sour beers. There’s a musty cellar, barnyard note is unmistakeable as Norman farmhouse yeast with touches of orchard Brett. Taste is juicy starfruit, mildly bitter apple skin tannin balance, very dry in the finish. Encompassing, fresh apple skin and flesh engulf the sides and roof of the mouth. Very impressive cider. If very fresh, I have no doubt this cider is in the top leagues of French cider and thus world cider.

Thanks to GT2! Beer pours with heavy carbonation, head similar to an IPA. There’s little head retention, but that’s to be expected with a cider. Hazy golden-orange color. Aroma is almost like a peach lambic, juicy peaches and fresh flowers, also a little dusty. The taste, wow. It’s pretty dry, which I really enjoy. Taste is peaches, some light citrus, a fresh sweetness but nothing cloying. Again, that dryness really balances it out really well. Absolutely well done.

2012 version, 3,5%. Bottle, bought @ the cidery. Pours clear golden with a medium, fizzy white head. Aroma has fresh apple, citrus, moldy oranges, light sugary. Highish carbonation, fine dry and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has good green apples, complex oaky character, light sherry, mild apple vinegar, kinda like a bit of leafy freshness. Really stunningly balanced, especially considering the low ABV.

750 ml bottle bought @ Systembolaget. Pours clear goldenish orange with a huge fizzy goldenish white head that quickly dissipates without leaving much trace on the glass. Smell is fruity and funky with tart apples, rubber, apple jam, lemon juice, dry soil, wood, barnyard, green grapes and hay. Taste is sweet and fruity with ripe apples, rubber, wood, vanilla, tart pears, barnyard, dry soil and smoked meats. Mouthfeel is round, fruity tart, slightly dry and light to medium bodied. Finish is sweet and tart with ripe apples, lemon zest, rubber, apple jam, dark grapes and wood. Very nice tasty quencher.

Corked bottle, vintage 2010
Beautiful color, bright gold-orange, hazy, with small but persistent collar of foam, and fine perlage. Wonderful fat aroma of apple skins, wood. Sweet flavor, with good apple juice and apple skins, high tannins and very high astringency, providing the required degree of complexity.
An excellent sweet-tannic cider, one of the best I ever tried.
