Corked bottle, tasting at Matt’s, vintage 2005, L060807
Dark amber color. Infinite fruitiness permeates the aroma. Very sweet, yet agile, sour to the right level, astringent in the final.
No matter what, La Face Cachée de la Pomme always has the best.

Leighton (18526) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2016
Bottle shared during the 2016 RB Best Awards. Many, many thanks to J. Hux for sharing this treat! Pours clear copper-gold with a few bubbles. Big juicy apple aroma, with light honey, clover, ripe apple. Hearty sweet flavour, rich and smooth, with some apple sauce, light caramel, suggestions of berries. Medium to full bodied, and lightly chewy. Warming on the finish, highly sweet, with lots more ripe apples and juicy apple sauce. Excellent. Absolutely delicious.

brokensail (16055) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 27, 2016
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2016 Bottle @ RBWG 2016. Huge thanks to Julien. Nice amber color to this. Big time acidity to this, which really helps with all the vanilla, caramel, and apple pie filling. Subtle spice, even feels like there’s a bit of oak character to it. Some toasted nuts, cake, honey, and baked apple. Great mouthfeel. Damn good.

375mL bottle, pours a hazy dark amber orange with a few white bubbles as head. Aroma is complex as hell, with loads of caramelized apples and medium sweetness. Flavour is complex, with loads of rich caramelized apples, toffee, and medium sweetness. Elegant, sweet and complex – an ice cider of the usual luxuriousness of Le Face Cachee de la Pomme. Amazing.
