Christian Drouin Sparkling Cider, Pays D'Auge, Normandy France [375ml]

4.5% ABV

Domaine Christian Drouin in known for Calvados, the famous French apple brandy, but sometimes he also makes cider! 

This aged cider sees about thirty different apple varieties from the orchards of Normandy, and is medium-dry. 

70% of the blend comes from bitter sweet and bitter apples, 20% comes  from sweet apples, and 10% comes from acidic apples. Harvesting is  carried out by shaking the trees. The fruit is then left in a loft above  the press in order to ripen fully. Only mid season and late season  apples may be used for the cider. If apples ripening in September were  used, they would have to be mashed early in the year when the  temperature is to warm for the production of good cider.

Serve in a glass!

As the Calvados production became  successful, Christian Drouin Junior moved the production to a larger  facility. He chose a former stud farm at Coudray-Rabut. In 1990, the  estate was restored and is a beautiful representation of 16th and 17th  century local architecture. In 1994, the Ministry of Culture and  National Council for Culinary Art selected 100 "Sites of Excellence in  Taste" throughout France. One of these was the Couer de Lion estate,  representing the Pays d'Auge region. "The aim of this distinction is to  enhance appreciation of site Cidres Pays d'Auge & Comte Lauristons  that are remarkable from the point of view of culture, tourism, and  gastronomy so as to ensure thet they become places where our true  heritage can be discovered."
