"I wanted to apply what I'd learned about enology to cider making" - Eric Bordelet 

Pairing Ideas: The profile is sweet, fruity, and slightly acidic aromas of wine autumn apples.  Lightly alcoholic.  Perfect with savory pastries or to take you through a simple meal at home any day of the week.  I like this option when I want something complex but with lower alcohol.  I also appreciate its mild sweetness, yet that acidity and layered flavors to back it up! 

The Producer:  Eric Bordelet is a legend in the wine world.  The mentorship to back up his talent. In 1992, Eric Bordelet, a sommelier who trained in some of Paris’ top restaurants, returned to southern Normandy to take over his family’s estate and orchards. With the encouragement of his close friend, the iconic vigneron Didier Dageneau of Pouilly-sur-Loire, he began producing artisanal ciders from apples and pears—ciders without equal that draw more relative comparisons to fine, vintage wine than to beer. Over the years, he has revolutionized the cider industry by bringing it into restaurants, high-end wine shops, and export markets worldwide. He uses the old French spelling for cider, “Sydre” and “Sidre,” to name his bottlings.
