COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Normandy varietal cider made from Gros OEillet apples. The cider results from apples harvested from our own orchards. No added sugar, preservative or yeast, naturally sparking.
Made in the modern French factory manner with added fungal pectin methyl esterase and calcium to induce a keeve, followed by nitrogen flotation, then a slow wild yeast fermentation in refrigerated tanks, followed by centrifugation to remove most of the yeast and a final step in a pressure tank so the natural CO2 can be filled into the bottle with the cider under counterpressure. It's then been pasteurised in the bottle.

leaparsons (8264) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2005
Golden with slowly rising bubbles. Aromas are sweet and spritzy apple juice with some earthiness. Flavours are earthy apples with a mellow sweetness. Spritzy with a nice sparkle - not much on the finish but this is very drinkable. Seems too carbonated for a French cider.

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2004
500ml Bottle from Sainsburys 2003 vintage. Golden and spritzy with no head. Very fruity aroma. Dryish but also fairly sweet, quite clean tasting but overall dull and without much apple fruitiness. No farmhouse funk to speak of, this ammounts to a bland attempt a gimmicky ’posh’ cider. Refreshing if nothing else. (1011)

Gentle woody apple notes with a suggestion of faint caramel in the nose, soft and ellusive in the mouth with some low apple sweetness and a slight smoky woodiness. Finish is brief and appley with a touch of dryness developing

Bottle, Vintage 2003, available in Tesco’s. Sweet vanilla and apple aroma with a natural effervesence. The cider is dry and a little perfumed but nicely balanced with a gamey taste. Very good cidre indeed.
