Brilliant gold color. Aromas of water chestnuts, greens, graphite, apples with hard cheeses, and eucalyptus with a lightly tannic, spritzy, dryish light-to-medium body and a tingling, captivating, medium-length bee pollen and chamomile finish. A vinous, somewhat austere cider with a structure to elevate the meal.

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.
