Category: French Cider

Date Tasted:
Country: France
Alcohol: 4.5%
Brilliant old gold color. Mild, buttery aromas and flavors of caramelized apples and nuts, dried pear, clover honey, and grass and straw with a crisp, finely carbonated, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a graceful, medium-long finish with accents of blood orange and nutshell finish. A nicely astringent and dry French cider.

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.
