Domaine de la Minotière is a small 15 hectare single domaine of cidre orchards cultivated under 100% organic certification. The specialty is traditional farmhouse cidre produced both in a dry (Brut) and sweet (Doux) style.
ORCHARD & PRODUCTION
The orchards contains a variety of apple trees (Binet rouge, Bisquet, Noel des champs, Clos renaux, Petit jaune, Peau de chien) producing multiple kinds of fruit flavors such as sweet, bitter or acidulous.
The cidery follows the Organic chart for all operations. Manually sorting out apples and pressing at a very slow process called “presse à paquet” which is the traditional way in Normandy. The must is cooled in a tank which is temperature controlled & regulated to permit their clarification.
The natural fermentation goes through a 3 month process where the yeasts is present on the fruit.
Full bodied and slightly sweet, with subtle apple character, and a beautiful balance of acid, tannin, sugar. It has a mix of citrus peel and musty floral notes, and fruity aromas of apricot and citrus fruits with a sweet taste.
