Golden amber color. Complex aromas and flavors of apple fruit leather, butter, orange gelee, hints of spearmint, and tobacco with a round, crisp, spritzy, fruity sweet medium body and a smooth, interesting, medium-length finish conveying shades of baked plum and apple. A complex and vinous French Cider with excellent food affinity.

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.
