3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
75cl bottle from backstage at Le Point Ephemere, Paris. Assumed this was some cheap Monoprix cidre but wasn’t that bad at all. Pours a deep gold with bright, fruity overripe apples and a pastry aftertaste. An enjoyable French cider.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Still asking myself how this one can call itself a brut. Sweetish from start to end with loads of carbo and missing the same amount of apples. Just an alcoholic lemonade with a very slight sourness in the end.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clear light amber / dark gold in colour with medium body. Nose of overripe apples and sherry. Taste of light dry apples, green pears and grass. Flowery finish. The cider ends medium dry and gets better to be drunk when the carbonation is gone. It was alright but nothing really for me.
