Hérité d’un savoir-faire et d’une longue tradition familiale, le cidre de Fouesnant est élaboré à partir de nos propres vergers du Pays Fouesnantais. Ce cidre respecte l’assemblage de variétés anciennes, récoltées à la main, sur nos vergers non désherbé (enherbement total naturel). Triées manuellement, le pressurrage se fait à maturité complète des fruits, de fin septembre à décembre. La fermentation est lente et se termine par une prise de mousse en bouteille de 2 mois et demi environ ce qui lui confère une bulle fine et digeste.

On reconnait volontiers la personnalité de ce cidre par son amertume, sa rondeur et ses parfums persistants de pomme fraîche, de beurre frais et de noisette.

Nos cidres ont obtenu les récompenses suivantes au Concours de Fouesnant 2011 :

- Médaille d’Argent et premier prix pour le Cidre Brut

- Médaille d’Or pour le cidre demi-sec

750 c&c from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours translucent gold with a fizzy white head. Interesting aroma of apple and golden apple skins. Mild. Freshish. Med body almost. Flavor is quite ripe apple - seems more golden than not. Again there is a woody, astringent aspect - tho it’s not excessively dry. It’s making me think of Norman farmhouse cider. Specifically Le Verger de Giverny. Which I now think I should have rated a bit higher. French cider seems ever quite good.

degbert (1594) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 10, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear gold with a light ring head. Nose is maple, talc, green apple, and a definite barnyard funk. On the tongue, it’s honey-sweet, but it has a funky snarl to it; a little deceptive, and I like that. Finish is long and has apple-peel tannic drying elements. Good.

dreamt12 (11) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUN 23, 2014
Very gentle sulfuric notes, over-ripe pear/peach like aroma (not necessarily resembles apple), lively carbonation. Be careful when you open the bottle :) Semi-Sweet, dry tart like a bit astringent finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

yngwie (16315) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 23, 2012
Bottle, 375ml corked. A clear one, golden in color and with some white bubbles around the rim. Quite farmhouse-ish nose with lots of apples. Tasteful, semi-dry and pleasant, medium body. Lots of apples and a solid dose of farmyard. Lasting apple finish. A tasteful one, although a bit too much on the woody, earthy and farmyardish side. 120623
