Cidrification

The apples are harvested frozen and pressed frozen, after several cold spells of temperatures below -10° C, to ensure that the fruits are properly frozen on the trees. They are then pressed, still frozen. The nectar, concentrated in this manner, is fermented for 8 months at low temperature and is slowly clarified.

Tasting Notes

Bright color with a golden yellow robe and coppery hues. An expressive, intense and complex nose with notes of apricot, date, fig, walnut and spice. On the palate, its flavors faithfully reflect its aromas. It is powerful, mellow and unctuous. An astonishing balance and a finish on the persistent maple taffy are the focus of our Winter Harvest.

Perferct with a foie gras from La Cannardise, a cheese with marbled or firm dough from the Fritz fromagerie. A delight with a walnut pie and dried fruit. Good to drink now, it can also be kept for several years.
