What characterizes you?
I’m convinced that the apple has an extraordinary aromatic richness. All the families of aromas are represented in apples, and the manufacturing technique will enable them to be revealed.
The cows are at the foot of the apple trees and participate in the natural enrichment of the soil, so I don’t use any fertilizers. I’ve also encouraged the nesting of swallows, which feed on insects and so naturally protect my apple trees, so I don’t use any insecticides. I leave the apples to ripen in the grass once they’ve fallen, so that they can reveal all their aromas. They are then packed by hand, so as not to damage them.
Do you have any tips for tasting cider?
The cidre is very suitable as an apéritif with its 4° alcohol, its fruitiness and acidity make it ideal for dégustation. It also goes very well with meats, cheeses and of course apple tarts!!
