COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Produced since 1994, Neige Première is the leading inspiration of La Face Cachée de la Pomme. It is the very first ice cider (also known as apple ice wine) to be commercialized in Québec and throughout the world.

In the fall, very ripe apples are 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 naturelle. After few days of intense cold, concentrated must, representing ¼ of the initial quantity of juice, is collected by gravity. The extracted must is then placed in stainless steel tanks where it ferments at least six months at low temperatures before being bottled.

ABV varies between 10-13% depending on seasonal temperatures.

UPDATED: JUN 1, 2019 Shared bottle with wife at weekend to remember 5/31/19 at the marriot downtown indianapolis. Loves those fireworks from the hotel floor! Light honey whiskey color. Aromas apple pie, alcohol, slight barrel age, slight cinnomon. A complex ice cider. Interesting coming from just apples! Flavors apple pie, alcohol, wood, slight whiskey essense but not so much an impression. Smooth highly sweet and just darn delicious and different from any other wine. Much different from cider.

AlainG (3051) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 17, 2018
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2018 D'un superbe doré lumineux où de belle jambes sont visibles sur la paroi. Un nez de pommes mûres, de compote de pomme et de poires en conserve. Des saveurs fruitées plus que par la pomme et acidulées, accompagnées d'une belle amertume. C'est presque poivré, c'est sucré et ça goûte les fruits, en l'occurence la pomme et la poires, cuisinés. (Version 2016) (2696-081218)

radagast83 (10674) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JAN 10, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2018 500ml bottle at the January DC Ratebeer tasting. Poured a kind of dark, very clear apple juice color. Totally still. Aroma was a blast dry, sweet, boozy apple skins. Smooth apple notes. Some brandy. Apple skin. Smooth, hot, but pleasant as it's consumed. Really nice, smooth character.
