Brilliant golden amber color. Bright, attractive, fruity aromas and flavors of tart tartin and buttercream with a silky, crisp, finely carbonated, fruity medium body and a smooth, charming, medium-length finish revealing notes of honeyed kiwi and nuts, melon and quince, grassy earth, and herbal tea finish. A complex, nuanced cider with a solid core of fruit.

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.
