Acheté en juillet 2008, bouteille bleu de 750 ml. Blonde paille, un peu de trace. Arome de pomme sec et croustillant, sensation sûrette. Goût bien pétillant et gazeux, pomme légèrement sûrette avec des notes d’aspérines, l’alcool est très subtile. Je ne suis un fan des cidres et vins, mais c’est plaisant!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
pours hazy very pale yellow like its almost non carbonated counterpart, low and disappearing bubbly white cap. green apples, some perfumey pears, white grapes, hint of honey sweetness - less sweeter impression compared to its non sparkling declension, faint spices, bit of zest and pepper. average carbonation - tad prickly at first, light body, sparkling and semi-sweet finish. not necessarily an improved version of verger sud.

pours slightly hazy extra pale yellow with a bubbly and disappearing white cap. faint apples, white grapes and white wine, pear-ishy, champagne-like mineralness more than its soft fizziness, some sweetness - plain sugars, yeasty dryness, maybe a touch of acidity. prickly carbonation, light to medium body - oily, semi-sweet and fruity-slightly vinous/sparking white wine finish. ok.
