2011 Eric Bordelet "Granit" Poiré (pear)

SKU #1088933

A sommelier by training, in 1992 Eric took over his family's estate and orchards. His goal is to revolutionize the cider industry and bring it into restaurants, high-end retail and export markets. A close friend of his, Didier Dagueneau, the icon wine-maker in Pouilly-sur-Loire, has encouraged him down the path of producing ciders from apples and pears that are like no others. Ciders that make one draw comparisons to fine vintage wine. The core of Bordelet's estate is the 1.5 hectares of antique varietal apple and pear trees that are 40-50 years old. He plants only true varietal (non-hybrid, non-cross) trees, and the trees are balanced between sweet, bitter and sour varieties. Currently, he has 20 varieties of apples and 14 varieties of pears planted. The orchards are farmed organically and biodynamically, and Eric believes that this is the regimen which produces the best fruit for ciders. This is Bordelet's "Grand Cru" pear cider. The fruit source for this is a stand of 60 foot tall, 300 year old pear trees. This is a cider which can stand tall with fine champagne. It is only lightly filtered in order to preserve the texture and flavor of these minuscule pears.
