This natural cider cuvée - LE CIDRE Libre - is out of the ordinary. The apples come from the wild and were unearthed around the cidery. Sports harvest was done in Hemmingford in September 2021.
The unearthed fruits are of the bitter type. Fermentation on indigenous yeasts reveals a forest nose, hints of apricot and rustic roses. There's substance in the mouth: it's spicy and nourishing with an astonishing bitterness reminiscent of the peel of grapefruit. The finish is mineral and… Surprise! After two minutes, we recognize fresh apple. wow!
The deposit at the bottom of the bottle is normal. Before pouring into a glass, swirl gently to mix the lees for maximum flavor enjoyment. LE CIDER Libre can be consumed now. Serve it chilled to drink with tacos, a toasted sandwich, Indian curry, or roast pork. Treat yourself!
