Cidre Bouché : 'Slightly dry , Lovely fresh apple dry taste. A smooth finish' Said Max Allen, Gourmet traveller
Pours a murky rustic gold with a raging carbonation driven head which abruptly collapses 1/2 way through drinking. Aroma features a complex blend of tannic wood, hint of plastic, wild ferment notes and a rich apple fruit character. On the palate there is sweet juicy red ripe apple fruit, loads of oaky tannin, a spicy wild note and a tart long finish. Awesome cider.

AOC. The ciders are 100% pure juice like all French ciders or Perry must be by law and no addition of anything but sulphite under strict conditions is permitted. This is very important to bear in mind when in most countries of the world ciders can have up to 45 % water added , with sugar, aromatics synthetic or natural, sugar, alcohol, preservatives etc. Absolute authenticity and tradition guarantees that beside the strict French cider regulation, Le Pere Jules, do not pasteurize, nor add sulphites to their ciders , meaning their quality is unmatched, but they are unpredictable, subject sometimes to secondary explosive fermentation, making champagne to look tame in comparison.
