Bright medium copper red color. Rich, complex, attractive aromas of honeyed roasted apples and nuts, wild strawberry puree, golden raisin, and peach with an racy, fizzy, very sweet medium-to-full body and a polished, complex, long sour cherry compote, green apple skin, and Meyer lemon marmalade finish.

French-style ciders range in alcohol from 3-10% and are typically full-bodied with lively carbonation and subtle sweetness. This category includes all French-produced and inspired ciders including Normandy-style ciders. These ciders are often available in larger format bottles enclosed with a cork and cage. French-style ciders are more wine-like than most styles, and can be incredibly complex with lively acidity making them a perfect pair for a wide array of cuisines.
