2018 Julien Frémont Cidre Argile
Julien makes two special ciders from different terroirs.
This one is made from apples picked from trees that grow in clay soils on the lower slopes near the road that runs in front of the house. Here the clay is quite deep and is packed with minerality leading to very healthy trees due to the good drainage. This year it has a delightful hint of sweetness without being overtly sweet. It also has a tiny tang of refreshing bitterness at the end of the palate.
