A Most Remarkable 5-Star Cider — Bordelet Granit

2012 Eric Bordelet Poiré Granit

Eric_BordeletThe pears that M. Bordelet uses to make this Perry come from 300 year old, 60 foot trees on his estate in Northern France. 300 years old. Say it with me. Planted at some point around the year 1715. Remarkable. Why am I not then surprised that this is the finest cider I’ve yet tasted? There is a great deal of pride behind this bottling. It’s meant to impress. It’s meant to demonstrate where the heights lie. I can’t urge you strongly enough to go out and buy as much of this as you can possibly find.

Alcohol: 4%
Source: Pays d’Auge, France
Fruit: 300 Year old Pear Trees
Price: $20-$25

RATING: * * * * * of 5

eric_bordelet_granitSeamless. The Eric Bordelet Poire Granit is an absolutely seamless Perry that not only deserves serious drinking but serious study too. The tale begins with a head forming pour of golden carbonated liquid that calms itself quickly into a dazzling vertical march of tiny bubbles up inside a perry ringed at the surface with a consistent thin foam around the edge. The aromas are a gallop out of the glass of pure pear, apple, and the tiniest hints of chalk, yeast and oil that merge together with pear leading the way. The Granit expands richly across your palate with light carbonation and a medium body. The acidity is high but it doesn’t sting at all. Tannins come with this Perry, but they too are integrated nicely. But the flavor! There is great purity here that has to be marveled at. Pear, apple, the tiniest hint of lime are wrapped around a very light sweetness. It’s all very caressing. And it’s long too; those fruit flavors lingering and hanging around quite some time. This is elegantly crafted Perry that deserves our attention. And it has to be said that at its price point in the vicinity of $20, this is among the best values in fine drinking you will come across.

    Told you. That tree is well over 300 years old now, I’ve marveled beneath its branches and drank deeply from its labor. Brilliant cider and without question, for me, the best there is.

    as well as watch shows. An innovative way to complete all of these tasks has been a notebook computer.

    These desktops are mobile, small, potent and lightweight.
