COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In the fall, very ripe apples are hand picked and stored at cool temperatures until the end of December. Once winter arrives, the fruit is pressed and the juice obtained is placed outside in the intense January cold. During crystallization, the water separates from the sugars by NATURAL CRYOCONCENTRATION. After few days of intense cold, concentrated must, representing 1/5 of the initial quantity of juice, is collected by gravity. The must is then placed in OAK barrels where it ferments for at least eight months at low temperatures. Raised on lees for 4 months in barrels, it was then assembled and bottled.

mcberko (14047) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 25, 2015
Rating #8000. Nose brings out toffee, caramelized apples, and bready apple pie. Flavour is wonderfully complex, with notes of caramelized apples, toffee, bready notes, and light oak. Very silky, viscous and warming. Everything is in perfect proportion. The complexity is through the roof. Certainly an elegant ice cider.

Puh, can it go better than this? Lovely yellow flavour, cinnamon, sweet pink candy. At the backend, a modest acidity. This is well made, great product. The mouthfeel at his best. Ice cider to be king!

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - MAR 3, 2015
[ Bottle ][ 375mL ][ La Face Cachee QC ][ $21 ][ Neige Stemware ][ 2.27.15 ]
>> Pours deep fire iridium amber with thick alcohol legs and dense viscosity. Nose is salted caramel apple, apple strudel, freshly baked apple pie. Taste brings dark cherry, tart green apple, and mild spicy alcohol along with that playoff of salt, sour, sugar, and tannin. Not syrupy sweet, more like biting into more apple strudel or apple danish but the apples inside are fresh and still have a crunch. Mild tannin balance. This one is a knockout as expected.

brokensail (15754) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 19, 2015
Bottle @ Mondial des Cidres de Glace 2015. Light amber colored pour with sticky legs. Juicy stone fruit and apple on the nose. Great caramel, some maple, and tons of vanilla. Slight oak, some fruit skins, and pear. The flavor is just super juicy and fruity. Great acidity as well. Sweet vanilla, caramel, and a hint of maple. Another very well done product from La Face Cachée de la Pomme.
