2016 La Cidrerie du Vulcain de Fer Sec



Jacques Perritaz, the man behind La Cidrerie du Vulcain, works exclusively with the local orchard fruits of Fribourg: ancient varieties of apples, pears and quinces grown on high-branched, untreated trees.
The Fribourg terroir, with its cool climate and diverse soils, provides for beautiful nuances in the aromatic expression of the Vulcain ciders, an effect that is only enhanced by the old age of the high-branched trees.
The pure expression of the Fer (iron) apple (Bohnapfel) and the iron shows in the depth of this cidre - in the mouth it is a little weightier than Transparente and it is has a deeper tone and depth. It is very elegant and brisk in style with a sensual depth and lingering finish.
