COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fluid, fresh, rich and perfectly balanced: Givré is incomparable. It is soft on the palate, with a velvety, smooth mouth feel. Givré is superior in quality because care is used throughout the production process. From the orchard to the wine glass, nothing is left to chance.

mcberko (9626) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 28, 2015
2012 vintage. Bottle sent from wilco (thanks a lot, Mike), pours a clear light golden. Nose brings out light caramelized apples, toffee, and light candied sugar. Flavour is actually quite light for an ice cider, with light caramelized apples, medium sweetness for an ice cider, and some toffee. Moderate alcohol burn. Low-to-medium complexity for an ice cider, but still lovely.

tom10101 (4007) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 21, 2015
2 oz from bottle (375 ml). 2011 Harvest.

Appearance: Clear bright orange-golden with nice legs.

Aroma: A bit of alcohol at first, but it then settles down a bit to let the apples shine… juicy McIntosh. There’s also some caramel and very light spiciness.

Taste: Medium sweetness and moderate acidity presence with a bit of alcohol, overripe apples, caramel and mild spiciness.

Palate: Medium body. Not super thick. Moderately sticky. Warming finish. Lingering sweet apples aftertaste.

Overall: A tad boozy, but otherwise it’s a rather classic well-executed Ice Cider. It showcase the apples quite well.

mathieuc (2277) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 21, 2015
Pours a clear amber with low legs. Nose is like taking a bite into a Cortland. Light brown sugar and plenty of acid. Taste starts lightly sweet but quickly turns to tart. Taste is of light brown apples with light apple pie impressions. Body is medium and mouthfeel ever so lightly sticking to the lips. Alcohol shows a bit in the mouthfeel but that’s about it. Really good!
