Pere Jules Brut Normandie Cider NV
This cidre from one of France best known cider producers opens with a modest head that moves aside to reveal a beautiful, rich golden color with the loveliest hint of orange. The nose possesses driving ripe apple aroma, notes of lemony goodness, and an intoxicating hint of roasted nuts. This cider delivers a medium body and a near perfect balanced of acid, sugar and tannin. The tannins are memorable a good minute after the first sip, but produce salivating, not puckering. Ripe, slightly sweet apple flavors in this cider. They are pure and piercing and delicate. Secondarily the citrus flavors support and lift up the ripe apple flavors. Finally, the finish is long and lasting. Beautiful cider.
