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.

Looks and tastes exactly like regular neige. Really really good. Lots of residual apple fruit sugars.

Bottle thanks to Bu11zeye. Pours a clear crystal gold, nice legs. Aroma of sweet apple and some caramel, a little cinnamon. Flavor is very much the same, sweet as well. I was caught off with this....I had to take a second look. Im not that much of a cider drinker yet but this was damned good!

My 1100 rating. 2004 bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours a pale gold with amazingly strong legs. Aroma of sweet apple, caramel, cinnamon and a light must note. Very sweet in the aroma. Taste is full and sweet with cinnamon, apple pie, caramel. This is a cider that forces you to smile. Syrupy and sweet, completely mouth coating, but still not as full as Frimas. A great Ice Cider!

hopscotch (10612) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 18, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2009 Bottle… This cider rocks!... Clear golden/almost amber cider with really nice legs. The aroma is a merger of sweet red and sour green apples… in a wooden basket, baking in the sun. A smidge of ethanol. Full-bodied and silky-smooth. The flavor is very sweet, but equally acidic and tart. Lengthy, sweet/tart finish.

TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 27, 2008
375 ml, 2004. Clear honey oak with no bubbles. Mouthwatering nose of baked and candy apples with slight woody peel. Crisp nectar with a spicy tingle. Taste is super sweet apple, of course, but enough tart, sour notes to balance. Hints of cinnamon, melon and lemon. Intensely wonderful.

UPDATED: OCT 10, 2008 Bottle shared by iowaherkeye. Many thanks. I love this stuff. Poured a clear golden color. Enticing aroma of apple liqueur and buttery caramel. Slick, full mouth feel with apple (of course), vanilla, caramel, and a hint of oak. Sweet up front with a light tart finish and a warming alcohol effect. I’d like to try some with a piece of apple pie and vanilla ice cream.

DietPepsican (1586) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - SEP 14, 2008
Gold pour. Aroma is very rich, lots of fresh apples and some oak. Flavor follows through about the same. A little bit of spice, crackers, vanilla and some white wine notes. Very sweet finish. Thanks joey!

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 11, 2008
Pours yellow with a nice neck. Smells of up front apples, a wine cellar, some nice oak, a touch of spice. Taste’s dry with a nice sweetness that yields some floral hints and a touch of honey. Very enjoyable.

2004 vintage. Aroma is massive, cellared apples, cinnamon a little honey, some hints of oak. This is one I could have just sniffed for a long long time. But then the flavor! Wow, the first taste is almost overwhelmingly apple, but then all the other more subtle flavors come to play and it just keeps getting better and better. It’s sweet, but has a good tart kick, the oak adds a depth you don’t quite get in the Neige alone. This stuff was sublime.
