Brut Artisanal Cidre

Gold color. Aromas and flavors of frosted cereal, raisins in a cardboard box, silky nougat, evaporated milk, and apple seed with a slightly chewy, bright, dryish light-to-medium body and a brisk finish revealing notes of apple soufflé finish. Attractive tannins make this a solid choice for a rustic dinner.

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.
