Techniques used

Controlled fermentation in stainless steel vats with selected yeasts. As for a white wine, the fermentation is completely done, no residual sugars. The cider stays on its lees for several weeks, to take advantage of the lees autolysis phenomenon, giving roundness to the final product. The final stability is ensured by filtration and light sulphiting. The cider obtained is limpid, without any deposit. Bottled in spring.
Density (O.G.): 1001 after fermentation


Tasting notes

Eyes: Brillant color, golden and limpid.
Nose: Buttered aromas, fresh apple supported by exotic notes of pineapple, citrus fruits and acacia flowers.
Mouth: The attack is round and suave, followed by a nice freshness, a slightly saline mineral finish.
