The Sidre Brut is a classic dry cider, tender or mellow in the mouth, yet also lively with plenty of acidity and extremely refreshing. This would wash down those marvellous Breton galettes or crepes, and it would be pretty good also with charcuterie or cheese. French Artisan / Craft Cider at its very best.
CHÂTEAU DE HAUTEVILLE, Eric Bordelet – Charchigné, South Normandy – Biodynamic.
It was Didier Dagueneau who convinced Eric Bordelet, former sommelier at Paris’s three Michelin star Arpège restaurant, to develop a new, artisan style of cider, a natural product of character and thirst-quenching ability, which would also work with a wide range of different food. And so Eric refurbished his family’s ancestral orchards and ciderworks and would use his knowledge of viticulture to push for the highest level of quality.
The biodynamically farmed orchards – covering roughly 15 hectares – are situated in southern Normandy.
Eric grows 20 varieties of apples and 15 varieties of pear. Some of his pear trees are over 300 years old.
With an Ecocert certification for biodynamic farming and a scrupulous attention to detail Eric Bordelet makes wonderful natural products that are far removed from the denatured, gassy drinks that masquerade under the cider label. His classic ciders can age for five to seven years.
