Since 1950, Duche de Longueville has harvested the finest apples from Normandy, France. The estate was founded as a distillery in 1925, but switched to cider production in 1950. With over 1,482 acres of orchards near Dieppe with 15 carefully chosen apple varieties, it is the only commercial operation in France specializing in single-varietal, naturally-fermented ciders. These artisanal ciders, the traditional drink of Normandy, had become virtually extinct before the Duche de Longueville relaunched the style. The cider's juice is kept at a controlled temperature until blending and bottling. It is an exquisite cider with an unadulterated freshness, charm, and is absolutely delicious.
Explodes with the scent of apple fruit. A lively effervescence, refined, and delicate.
