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.

JonMoore (1840) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2006
Bottle. Very lively; leapt out at me. Darkish golden colour. Aroma of apples and caramel. Nice unusual taste, apples and caramel again. Dry finish. It is overly carbonated, but I can live with that. Good.

Beershine (5201) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAR 9, 2011
Bottle from store in Ireland. Dark gold, nice fizz. Aroma is honey and caramelized, roasted apples. Very refreshing. Too sweet and clashes. A good amount of must rescues it but otherwise it’s too sugary, especially to be called brut. Overall it’s drinkable.

leaparsons (7930) - 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.
