Sidre Brut "Tendre" (Eric Bordelet)

Eric Bordelet, Cidre de Nomandie Brut "Tendre", Normandy, France NV

{biodynamic} Non-hybridized, Antique apple varieties

APPLEY & SHARP, JUST OFF-DRY TO BALANCE THE ACIDITY

Eric Bordelet is a sommelier by training, but with the guidance of his friend/iconic winemaker Didier Dagueneau, he took over the family estate in 1992 with the goal of making ciders comparable to fine wines. With ancient varietal apple trees, Eric picks from 20 different varieties for their sugar level, acid levels and bitterness, then blends the fruits for complex, otherworldly cider. Every apple is hand picked and then left to dehydrate in crates before pressing. This cider is just off-dry and shows fine bubbles in the glass. (About 4% ABV)

Serving Suggestions: As an aperitif before dinner, or with leaf lettuce based salads and brie tart.
