3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at hotel from local supermarket.
slightly hazy burnished gold with brief white frothy disappearing completely and steady stream of bubbles. Fine moussy champagne carbonation and mouth feel. Sharp Apple crumble/ cider vinegar and oxidized Apple flesh on nose. Quite sweet up front with dry tannic middle and honey like notes in a dry finish. Long sweetish caramel note hangs around a bit offputting and carbonation OTT for me otherwise not bad.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
75cl bottle, Leclerq, No135183. Rustic apple peel and some sulphurs present a less than sparkly aroma than expected from a brut. Taste is quite muddled, flabby, with mid-body and both red and yellow apple notes. Not too much brett or sharper, engaging notes. Near-chugging industrial-style cider, fermier or not, that comes nowhere near the bretty depths some Brittany cider bars have on offer.

75cl bottle from Auchan. Pours clear gold with a mushy overripe apple aroma. Taste is fresh and light with a brightly sparkling mouthfeel. Bittersharp apples, sweet fruit and an acidic finish with a lasting fruitiness. Beautiful and refreshing.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
37,5cl. Very sour horse blanket-like in the nose. The cider starts very carbonated. Very dry. A bit watery in the beginning, the main part is fruity, but very dusty. The carbonation lies over the subtle fruitiness. I think my bottle is too old...
The dusty fruitiness in the aftertaste is gone medium-fast. Ripe apples, but too much dust. I have to get a fresh bottle... The cork says D4 2010 - if this is the bottling-date, my bottle is over 3 years old...

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A hazy amber cider with a thin white head, very effervescent. Nice sour apple aroma, sweet and smooth. In mouth, a nice sweet apple cider with some light epsom salt, bits of wildness, a bit of lactic points, quite nice. Just 2.07 euros for a 375 ml corked bottle at Inno Passy.

Honey golden in colour. A watery but lightly apply nose. Fresh and tingly in the mouth with barnyard woodiness and rustic apple character. Very drinkable and a real treat.
