Peer Cider is a cider made from wild pears from high-stem pear trees native to Lower Normandy and a small part of Brittany. Centuries , or even several centuries old, these majestic fruit trees dominate the bocage. They provide a glorious memory of this land, at a time when they covered the meadows in tandem with their apple tree cousins. Their exceptional size makes them fragile in strong winds. They thrive in cool and deep valley bottoms, where the apples hang advantageously along the slopes. Their tannic pears are mainly pressed in October. The must is clear, tangy and fragrant. The fermentation is rapid and provides a frank and tense aperitif within a few weeks, with a very pleasant freshness and pleasing structure.
LE PAULMIER peer cider is a perfect accompaniment to salted snacks and is preferably served in flute glasses. Continue with a meal, accompanying white meat, fish or even foie gras.
LE PAULMIER cider is only made from late varieties and from high-stem orchards.
The base of the blend comprises sweet apples (Rouge Duret, Doux Normandie, Saint Martin) complemented by bitter-sweet varieties (Petite Sorte, Groin d’Âne, Antoinette) and acidulates (Rambeau, Dolget de Dol)
On the balanced and structured fruit, LE PAULMIER bocage cider is usually served to accompany a meal, especially a cheese with a mould rind, such as Camembert, of course!
