A while ago there was a discussion about where to find authentic hard cider from my home region, Normandy. I think Das Ubergeek (was it you?) felt as deprived as I was by the lack of it in LA.
The quest has now ended at K&L Wine store on Vine.
My friend brought me a bottle of cidre brut bouché by Etienne Dupont. It's organic, yay!
Made in Victot-Ponfol in the Pays d'Auge, this is the real deal, just fermented apple juice, no sugar added, no yeast added.
Friend said it cost about $10/bottle. It taste jolly good and just like home. I say, hard cider lovers, rejoice and enjoy with some great cheese, good bread and a healthy appetite.
