Purveyors of fine grape juice
2016 Côme Isambert Poiré normandy, france
$31

Pear cider produced with small indigenous pears from Normandy.
Hand harvested, pressed, ferment started in tank, then completed in bottle, and left for 10 months before disgorgement. Zero SO2.
Super dry and crisp, this is the ultimate refreshment. I love this cider as it is not sweet in the way that many ciders are - it's more tonic-like. It has all the beautiful subtle pear characteristics, plus nice tannins to give it a gentle structure. There's a gentle saltiness and savouriness to it too. Whether it's for an aperitif, a palate cleanser, or just after a hard day's work, this is the drink that instantly revives and invigorates the senses. It's not filtered, so it has bits in the bottle - but that's completely natural! If you need a refreshing drink for summer - look no further!
