This delicious French cider is made at Cidrerie Anneville in the hamlet of Anneville, Normandy. It is made predominantly from Gros Oeillet cider apples which have outstanding acidity, flavour and richness. It is fermented in a way that creates a light sparkle.

SarkyNorthener (3330) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2014
Bottle from waitrose. Golden amber cider, moderate carbonation. Aroma of sweet apples and a touch of vanilla. Taste is stewed apples, vanilla, wood and a slightly dry finish. Decent.

McNeillR (1897) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 7, 2014
Steamy cooking apple and sticky bark nose. Vaguely opaque golden brown. Impressively wholesome bite initially, usually such a fruity apple echoing kick off is reserved for artificially sweetned noise that fades quickly. Brassy carbonation throughout. Lush skin of pastry sweetness and chewy dryness. Firm and resonating spicy dry finish and a pear drop linger. Excellent work Waitrose.

Bottle, poured into tumbler. Yellow, slight tinge of green. No head or lacing. Woody aromas, slightly sour smelling too. Very dry, especially in the finish. As stated, light sparkle. Good cider.

harrisoni (15792) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2013
Bottle from Waitrose, drunk at home. Clear gold with bubbles rising but no head. A slightly sour apple aroma. I like the apple flavour in this. It’s different. Some apple pie flavour. Distinctive and quite attractive. Even a bite of tannin on the gums. Dryish finish. Quite impressed. Easy drinking but with enough character to make it interesting. I’d certainly have it again as a thirst quencher. Quite parching really for a supermarket cider. Definitely drying. Tasty.

leaparsons (9101) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2013
Bottle. Golden with light carbonation. Aromas are apple juice and skin with some creamy oak. Jammy with yeast and some citrus. Flavours are sweet and sour apple with dry, woody notes. Has a nice sparkle with a dry finish. Decent.
