This low alcohol cider from Brittany begins its journey with a richly golden robe that verges on orange and and sports fast moving and abundant bubbles. The aromas is straightforward, dense baked apple. There is the slightest hint of barnyard, but its slight. One the palate this isn’t complex, but rather a lovely rendition of sweet apple. And despite its designation as “Brut”, this cider comes off as being at the very north end of the brut spectrum. Its structure is built around a relatively significant amount of sparkle and a decent tribe of tannins. All this helps the sugar go down. This is not a complex cider, but it is a clean, well-made and satisfying cider. And with its 4.5% alcohol you can drinking while flying a kit or while operating machinery with no moving parts.
