"This easy drinking, almost dry cider is produced in the Bordelet house style blend of bitter, tart and sweet cider apples. Perfect for light meals, picnics or by the glass, this cider will also pair beautifully with cheeses (Camembert!), desserts and tarte Tatin. Ciderly yours, Siderly yours!" - Eric Bordelet
The apples for this cider were manually harvested from orchards that are biodynamically farmed. The orchards' trees range from 50-200 years old in age, with 40-50 varieties of heirloom apples and pears. The apples were dehydrated for 4-5 weeks before being ground and pressed. The fruit was then fermented with indigenous yeast in tank before finishing the process in bottle.
About The Maker:
"After a long apprenticeship with some of the greatest names in the restaurant business and the world of wine, former sommelier, Eric Bordelet, took over the family business in 1992. The property consists of 23 hectares of certified organic cider apple, as well as perry and corme pear orchards.
Eric and his team are committed to organic cultivation, alongside bio-dynamic soil treatments are currently the best adapted methods in terms of the quality of fruit. Our orchards have been certified organic since 1996.
Harvested by hand, into wire baskets and then placed into paloxs. Due to the large number of varieties, fruits are selected from September through to December according to ripeness.
To create the final balance, each variety of fruit is processed individually: it is assembled, coarsely ground, gently pressed and the juice is racked and settled.
Ancestral fermentation in vats and then bottling takes place over several weeks, even months depending on the vintage, with more or less residual natural sugars (fructose) so no need to add any sucrose."
