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.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
750mL Bottle. Thanks for sharing, Amy! 2006. Wow, wow, wow. This is some stunning stuff. The champagne presentation gives this a special feel. The aroma crackles with fresh apples and reduced apple syrup, prickled with wild fruit touches. The flavor and body come in movements, which I always think is a hallmark of a really well crafted beverage. It starts out sweet and bright, bringing the fresh apples out, but then takes on a sudden tartness that really grabs the tongue, finishing with a clean bitter bite to sweep the tongue clean. Apple flavors roam around in earth, plum, brandy, chalk, and raspberry stem. All around fantastic.

Tight champagne carbonation. More acidic then tart. Dry, satisfying woody finish.
This stuff is helping me kick my terrible mimosa habit, one remortgage at a time. :)

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Head is initially small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is sparkling light yellow. Aroma is notes of apples and apple skins, flowers, oak, cinnamon, barnyard/horseblanket, band-aid, and cinderblock/minerals. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic. Medium body, watery/foamy texture, lively/fizzy carbonation.
A delightful, elegant example. This still has the wild horse-and-barn character Dupont is known for, but it’s more in the background here and integrates nicely with more delicate floral scents. I wish the aroma was a little more vibrant, but what’s there is very nice. More enjoyable in the mouth, with its Champagne-like bubbles and excellent sweet/sour balance. A very enjoyable cider, but I wouldn’t buy it again due to the steep price ($30 here).
