COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Variety of apples: 80% of bitter-sweet apples (Mettais, Binet Rouge and Frequin) and 20% of acid apples (Judaines and Petit Jaune) Pressing density: 1065 Fermentation takes place in Inox tank. Wild yeasts are used and fermentation is controlled mainly by settlement extraction. After the traditional fermentation in a barrel, it is the bottle itself that, thanks to a secondary fermentation, the “prise de mousse” takes place. This natural phenomenon requires careful and patient attention to each bottle. During the aging period “sur lattes”, the bottles are rotated daily, manually, gradually from the horizontal to the vertical position, in order that the sediment will accumulate in the neck of the bottle, to await removal. At the time of “degorgement”, the neck of the bottle is frozen and, enclosed in ice, the sediment is then removed.

750ml bottle from TheCheeseMan, thanks Dan. Clear pale yellow in colour with no head but lots of visible carbonation. The aroma is fantastic, wood, vanilla, apples, brown sugar with just a hint of alcohol. The flavour follows what the aroma brought, its like an iced cider without all the alcohol and not still. Finishes quite long and bubbly. The best regular cider that I have had, nearing ice cider in terms of flavour and aroma. Fantastic stuff right from the start.

ClubGonzo (3951) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 18, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear light yellow body with loads of visible bubbles. Nose is apple cores, yellow apple peel, wood, sawdust and hints of cellar mold and raisins. Taste is yellow apples, sawdust, wood, sweet apple cores, mellow cellar mold tones, raisins and hints of straw. Light body, semi-dry finish and high carbonation. A mellow and smooth cider, obviously aged with a rather high degree of success. Nice one.

Bottle from Binny’s in Lincoln Park. Very crisp and effervescent. Dry, but lacking in depth. Mild red apple and faint skin.

Palme (3237) - Bergen, NORWAY - NOV 1, 2013
A 0.75l corked bottle from 2009. A massive white fizzing head that vaporizes as quickly as I’ve never seen before. Like a champagne in many ways really. The cider is as no big shock to the system, clear and pale in color. Lots of aroma! I get green apples, a ton of cellar, lots or cork, wood and rhubarb. Really nice! A really high carbonation level on this and it has a good apple flavor all the way. That massive carbonation level gives it a push. Some cellar with wet rocks and a soft dry tongue in the aftertaste. It’s really good this! 09.08.2013

weihenweizen (1631) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - AUG 22, 2013
Refrigerated 75 cl green bottle corked, capped, and foiled poured into a white wine glass. Pours very pale yellow with small white head which dissapates very quickly, medium carbonation, aroma is beautiful tart apple, and no lacing. Taste is nice apple. Something in the finish is not that great, not worth the price.

daknole (8944) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 31, 2013
Pale gold color with a big puffy white head. Apples, dust, old basement flavors, leather, barnyard, manure, yeast. Fuck I love ciders like this. Awesome.

Sigmund (4958) - Tau, NORWAY - JUL 20, 2013
750 ml "champagne" bottle, vintage 2009, from Vinmonopolet. ABV is 6.9%. Very pale straw coloured. Pours very fizzy with a large white head that dies out instantly. Interesting aroma of cider apples, wild yeast / farmhouse, leather and funk. Dry and crisp flavour, cider apples of course, but also notes of dry champagne. Not as "coarse" and sulphurous as many other ciders. Very pleasant to drink, and refreshing on this warm summer evening.

Beer4000 (4405) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 20, 2013
750 ml champagne bottle. A pale golden body with a light, foamy white head. Lively carbonation like sparkling wine. Mild aroma of apples, yeast and slightly acidic fruit. Flavor is a bit like champagne with strong apple notes and yeast. Fine, light body, tickling carbonation and apples in aftertaste, somehow both sweet and dry. Not the most typical cider, reminds me a lot of champagne, still a clear apple flavor. Very enjoyable.

Travlr (9998) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 6, 2013
Beautiful bottle, extra half point for appearance. Pours crystal clear pale straw colored with a massive champagne head that settles to aggressive effervescence. Aroma of bright fruit with a dusty edge. Taste starts sweet with peaches and apricots in the background, then tart and dry earthy apples. Delicious and easy to drink.

75cl bottle from caves legrand filles et fils in Paris. Clear golden color with no head. Fizzy carbonation. Medium sweetness, bitterness and sourness. Very very balanced.
