Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and light
Discreet and medium-sized bubbles are perceptible watching the straw color of this cider that releases scents of Williams pear and white flowers. In the mouth, the same bubbles are thin and creamy, leaving space for the nice personality of pears, apricots and acacia. Overall it is tasteful and acidulous, ending on a fruity finale, all about harmony, persistency and balance.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.

Domain and appellation
The production coming from orchards located on nearly 18 hectares with 900 apple trees of 15 different varieties and 400 pear trees of nearly 20 different varieties.
- Benefiting from a designation Organic Agriculture (Agriculture Biologique AB) since 2012, all the producing operations are following strict rules.
- The picking up of pears is done manually on the ground, in October/November, just after their fall from the tree. Pears mature in a cellar for nearly 10 days to enhance their subtlety.
- Fruits are grinded and immediately put in tanks and pressed. A slow fermentation takes place for several months, and the bottling marks the culmination of these different stages of production.
