Details

Sidre Brut, Eric Bordelet, dry Normandy cider, biodynamic. Sidre brut is dry, mellow, lively and a refreshing acidity. There are roughly 15 different types of apple which make their way into the blend, including Douce Moene and Sang de Boeuf. The land is composed of schists and sedimentary rocks dating back to the pre-Cambrian period three million years ago, which lends a refreshing minerality to his ciders. Very easy to drink a whole bottle of in one sitting, especially with some cheese and ham savoury pancakes to wash down. Delicious.


In 1992, Eric Bordelet,previously sommelier at Arpege Alain Passard's Restaurant in Paris took over the production of this family property in Normandy. Believing that cider and Poiré should be produced like wine he grows more than 20 varieties of apple and 15 varieties of pear. Connoisseurs admire his entirely artisan and apothecary style of working. His range includes several products, all worth the detour. He has dubbed his ciders"Sydre"/"Sidre", the former spelling of those words. The property is situated on schiste, sedimentary rock dating back to the Précambrian era. This has produced silt and clayey-silt soil. Its 15 hectares property is divided up into 3 hectares 40-50 years old fruit orchard, a 7 hectares vineyard orchard planted in 1992 and trellised and 5 hectares pears orchard dating back to 1992. 20 varieties of apple at least (sweet,bitter,sour),15 varieties of pear. All cultivated according to bio-dynamic agricultural practices, as they are better adapted to the production quality fruit.
