The cider from the Calvados producer Christian Drouin is elaborate, starting from about thirty varieties of cider apples, of which a majority of bitter apples (70%) rich in tannins which confer its body, soft apples (20%) which bring fruit flavours alongside acidic apples (10%) to balance the structure in the mouth.
Tasting Note: This Brut is a blend of about thirty apple varieties. Some varieties are bitter and rich in tannins that provide body, along with some sweeter, softer varieties providing flavour and balance. This is a light and fruity cider, natural and a little alcholised, but rich in flavour. Best drunk fresh from a wine glass! Can fly solo, but rather good when paired with pork or fish.
