The Grappes of Chenin have been added while pressing the apples. Bottled as a Pet Nat at 20g/L RS. Disgorged by hand in march 2018. Rich cider with nice refreshing bubbles and a salty finish on the palate. Very unique!
My philosophy is to produce wines and ciders reflecting the diversity and richness of the terroirs of the Loire Valley / Normandy and to promote through various cuvees the complementarity of cultivars: grapes as Chenin blanc, Cabernet franc, Grolleau noir, Grolleau gris, Gamay as well as apples, pears. I work only with gravity and give the wines time to finish their natural processes without adding any additives.
