Eric Bordelet Poiré Authentique

Eric Bordelet Poiré Autentique is an off-dry, traditional French sparkling Perry. This delightful bottle of Pear Cider from Normandy is full of pear flavours and a subtle hint of sweetness, balanced by clean acidity. Made traditionally from old orchards that have never been sprayed, this is a great food pairing for scallops, savoury crepes and all manner of salads, delicate fruit based desserts or even cheese. Versatile, refreshing and delicious!

Eric Bordelet produces some of the finest French ciders. The most complex of his wines is his wonderful Poiré Granit. It exhibits an enthralling nose of pure, refined pear and spice aromas. On the palate, it has exceptional length, balance and definition. Light to medium-bodied, this pear cider has the depth, complexity and length of a top-flight wine.                          The biodynamically farmed orchards – covering roughly 15 hectares – are situated in southern Normandy.
With an Ecocert certification for biodynamic farming and a scrupulous attention to detail Eric Bordelet makes wonderful natural products that are far removed from the denatured, gassy drinks that masquerade under the cider label. His classic ciders can age for five to seven years, with the Granit able to go to ten years to develop superb complexity of flavour. Bordelet says that the impression of sweetness improves with age, the same as with older wines.
