Bright gold color. Aromas of fallen golden apple, fallen lemon, and earth with a lightly tannic, vibrant, fruity light-to-medium body and a compelling, brisk dried peach, hay, and parchment finish. A table-ready French Cider for cheese pairings with lots of earthy nuance.

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.
