2017 Julien Frémont Cidre Silex normandy, france
$35

Julien Frémont is a cider and Calvados maker from Normandy who makes cider the same way that his family has made it since the early 1700s - and using the same beautiful wooden press that the family has owned since that time.
Julien makes two special ciders from different terroirs. This one is made from apples picked from trees that grow in flint (silex in French) soils on the higher slopes above the house where the ground is littered with flint "cailloux" (small rocks). The cider reflects the minerality of the soils.
