Des glaces – Récolte Hivernale
- FOIE GRAS
CATEGORY : ICE CIDER
APPLE CIDER VARIETIES
A blend of four new varieties of apples and Golden Russet.
The apples for the Récolte Hivernale ice cider are harvested frozen and pressed frozen, after several cold spells of temperatures below -10 °C, to ensure that the fruits are properly frozen on the trees. The nectar, concentrated in this manner, is fermented for 8 months at low temperatures and is slowly clarified. The cider is bottled after a short stay in oak barrels.
Minot Cider House’s Récolte Hivernale ice cider has a bright, golden yellow colour with copper nuances. The nose is expressive, intense and complex with mingling notes of apricots, candied pears, ripe apples, tobacco and spices. To taste, the flavours accurately reflect its aromas. Récolte Hivernale ice cider is powerful, silky, and smooth. An amazing balance and a lingering finish characterize our ice cider Des Glaces – Récolte Hivernale.
This ice cider is served between 10°C and 12°C with foie gras, blue cheese, or dessert. Good to drink now, it can also be stored for several years.
Available at the Du Minot Cidery and at the Marché des Saveurs
