Picked by hand from the domaine’s orchards, 10 varieties of Pays d’Auge cider apples were used to create Les Grisettes. Mostly bitter apple varieties used.
Fermented and bottled using the Champenoise method.
Bottled at 6.5% ABV. Only 2,700 bottles made in 2014.
Tasting notes (from VinConnexion):
Color: Deep gold with copper nuances, beautiful brightness.
Nose: Intense cooked apples, aromatic herbs, a note of fennel, tarragon, and a hint of smoke and toast.
Palate: Harmonious and fruity, very long and fresh.
An easy sipper that may be enjoyed at any time. Works beautifully as an aperitif with cured meats and cheese, especially Camembert. Pairs well with pork or apple dishes, as well as desserts.
