A truly classic French from the Normandy region in France. Cidre Brut is a sparkling dry cider that has been made by the Desfrièches family for more than 100 years. They grow heirloom French cider apple varieties on their farm, and Cidre Brut is a blend of primarily Mettais, Domaine, Frequin Rouge, Rambault, Argile Grise, Argile Rouge, and Bisquet. The apples are hand harvested each October and then left in dry storage for 2 weeks prior to pressing - this process promotes sugar concentration. The cider is then fermented for up to 4 months before being bottled and cellared for at least 6 weeks. Secondary fermentation in the bottle results in the sparkling cider.
