Julien Fremont Cider Argile 750ml
Julien makes two special ciders from different terroirs. This one is made from apples picked from trees that grow in clay soils on the lower slopes near the road that runs in front of the house. Here the clay is quite deep and is packed with minerality leading to very healthy trees due to the good drainage.
As with the silex above, this cider reflects the minerality of the soils – it is a true “cider of terroir” because there are no additions whatsoever. Once the apples have spent some time in the attic to concentrate the flavours, they are crushed and the juice is transferred to large vats to ferment spontaneously.
