2006 bottle. Pours with a largish, foamy white head covering a hazy gold body with some particles. Aroma of apples, light barnyard and some cinnamon. Taste is sweet upfront followed by dry apples and earthyness. Fizzy.

375ml Bottle 2006 Cinnamon nose. Earthy and over ripe apple flavors. Finishes dry, with an odd wood finish.

2005 vintage: Pristine yellow gold. White head nosily fizzles as it slowly diminishes into a consistent, well-retained collar. Zingy, saliva-inducing aromas of unripe peaches, grass, melon, leather, bandage, dried apples, and musty basement. Notably minerally as well. Hints of iron and cedar. Soft, big-bubbled crackle of carbonation. Soft, well-rounded lactobacillus tartness immediately fuses with a bright kiss of explosive fruit which packs supple weight and a high concentration of refined sweetness. Notes of leather and oak gorgeously contrast with the slick body and remarkably succulent apple character as they lend light grip. Complexity is through the roof, and the balance is awe-inspiring. Brett-derived phenols crisply sparkle with pinpoint definition which echoes the equally snappy apple profile. Perfumey esters enhance the lift and bolster the quaffable nature of the cider. Borderline-brisk acidity lightly buckles the cheeks as it lends slight firmness to the otherwise resoundingly juicy body. Faint apple skin bitterness complements the structure as it harmonizes with the poignant yet artfully understated oak character. Tannins are nonexistent which allows the fruit to showcase its pureness. Acid continually teases the palate as it wavers in and out of the dense residuals. Lovely interplay between dryness and sweetness as it finishes with a lengthy fusion of pineapple, peach, musty cellar, and vibrant apples. Both a rustic and extravagant cider from France’s finest. Not stocking this by the case should be a sin. This is divine.

Consumed May ’06. Hazy yellowish-orange, decent head, lots of sedimant. Huge geueze like aroma. Sour apples, tart apple skin. Flavor much the same, with maybe a little cork character. Very dry, crisp. Very nice overall.

This is a lot more approchable than the others in the family. Much dryer on the palate, with some really upfront ripe apple flavors. Still has some of that vinous woody notes that I really do not like, but it blows off the longer you drink it and get used to it.

750 ml, 2006. Slightly foggy straw color with a lot of visible bubbles that break on the head to keep in there. Funky, sour smell that’s relatively subdued for a cider. Sweetness in the background - musty and woody. Pithy and woody. Decent sourness and much sweeter tasting that it was smelling. There’s a weird minty like eucalyptus cooling effect in there. It’s subtle but it puts me off. Overall, a nice cider.

Almost the color of ripe white wine. Sweet apple nose. Airy head that disapates quickly. pinpoint carbonation and sour sweet flavor.

750 ml/2005 vintage. Color is hazy golden-yellow. Aroma is sweet, ripe red apples. Good bit of carbonation adds to the texture. Flavor is a great balance of sweet and tart, just like the best apples. Mildly dry finish--I’ve found the lingering flavor of the organic to be much better than the non-organic version of the same cider, which tends to veer off into unpleasant (and unexpected) bitterness.

thedm (5137) - Fort Wayne, USA - FEB 1, 2008
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a large sized head of frothy fine to large sized clear colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a slightly hazy uncarbonated light orange colored body. The aroma was red apple. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a bubbly aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of green apple. Carbonated and bubbly to the tongue. Nice flavor.
