2008 Eric Bordelet "Doux" Sydre (apple) (Previously $11)

SKU #1056045

This is an off-dry sparkling cider from a maven of the Paris wine scene who returned to his native Normandy to produce traditional ciders like these. Sweeter than the Brut (naturally), the sugar rounds out the tangy apple flavors in this effervescent drink. A perfect summerime aperitif.

This reminds me of unfiltered, unpasteurized cider one would buy in the fall from roadside stands back East: deep orange-brown ciders with a hint of spritz as they naturally started to ferment. The Eric Bordelet has the fizziness and alcohol of hard cider with the delicious fruit of those roadside apple ciders. This should go well with traditional fall dishes.
Drink from 2011 to 2012

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Loire

- Of all of the French wine producing regions, the Loire might produces the greatest variety of wines. They range from still to sparkling, very dry and acidic to hearty sweet, and clear in color to a deep purple. The diversity of wine produced in this region is due in part to its dynamic climate, which ranges from Continental to Mediterranean. This region is best known for Sauvignon blanc, Chenin blanc and Cabernet Franc. The most famous areas in the Loire Valley may be Sancerre and Vouvray.
