Pierre Huet Calvados & Cider Medium Dry Cider

Pierre Huet's medium dry cider (AOP Pays Auge) is made using traditional methods:

  • Apples apple are picked at the most suitable level of ripeness manually and are machine washed
  • They are crushed in open air vats to give the juice its colour and to release its aroma
  • The pulp is pressed within an average output of 650 litres per ton
  • Juices are naturally clarified
  • Fermentation is slow (1 to 4 months)
  • The Appellation Cidre Pays d’Auge is obtained following testing by the INAO (Institut National des Appellations d’Origine)
  • The cider is non-pasteurized cider and some natural fermentation occurs in the bottle
  • Annual production : 20-30,000 bottles

TASTING NOTES:

  • Looking : clear, golden with orangey gleams, thin bubble.
  • Smelling : ripe fruit flavour.
  • Tasting : round and generous. Balance between sweetness and bitterness.
  • Typical Cider of the Appellation Pays d’Auge.

SERVING SUGGESTIONS
Suggested serving temperature is cold (8 to 10°C).
If you can't wait and want to enjoy your cider right away, enjoy this drink with fresh cream dishes and desserts, especially apple pie or crumble.

If you can cellar the cider for at least a year, it will age nicely and will pair nicely with white meat and some red meat (lamb, sausage).

As it ages, you can enjoy the cider with ripe, soft cheese.

STORAGE
In the bottle, the Pays d’Auge cider continues to ferment (due to the yeasts).  It's best to store this product upright (not on its side) at a temperature of 10°C for up to 3 years.
