3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle at Avec in Chicago. sparkling clear pale gold body with soda-like bubbles and little head retention. has a fairly simple nose typical of Spanish sparkling cider: mild apple / pear juice, very low must and a mineral quality similar to Champagne. juicy, fleshy ripe apple fruit flavor with medium-high acid, medium bitterness, medium-low sweetness. light body thinning late. the vibrant acid and mineral flavor make is enjoyable to drink but it’s certainly not something I would call complex.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
una sidra que sorprende, refermentada en botella tiene unos apreciables 7
.5% que no se notan nada. Color dorado, espuma fina con rosario de burbujas. Una presentación muy elegante. Seca y sin concesiones, nos gustó mucho y será una baza para estas navidades. Algo cara sin embargo, merece la pena.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle bought in Cervezorama. Pours a very pale gold with no head. Nose is apples, nutmeg, and light floral notes. Endogenous carbonatation, refermented in bottle. ¡Almost 8%! Very dry, sold as brut nature and delicious; there’s a lot of flavor in there, and new layers keep revealing themselves. Clean and astringent with good carbonation. Excelent and new concept of cider. Very good.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Head is initially small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is sparkling light yellow. Aroma is notes of minerals, wood/stems, and apple skin. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic. Light body, watery texture, lively/fizzy carbonation, lightly astringent.
Dreadfully dull. I reviewed this a week ago alongside the Dupont Cuvee Colette (another Champagne-like cider) and this one just couldn’t compete at all.
