Known more as a cutting-edge cider maker, Eric Bordelet was a top sommelier at Arpege in Paris, before returning home to Normandy in 1992 to take over the family business. He biodynamically grows more than 20 apple varieties and 15 pear varieties. JASON WILSON, Vinous

Purity, perfect balance, a long finish, complex aromas…the ciders and perries of Eric Bordelet are just like wines. ANTOINE PETRUS, sommelier

Another 'reserve' bottling made from pear trees estimated to be about 300 years old, this is a stunning off-dry cider - yet it doesn't taste particularly sweet. This is due to the tannin and acidity which Bordelet says is twice as high as the apple. This is a delicious aperitif or cheese wine - pure pear tones wrapped in a fine bubble with a lively mineral line. With just 5% alc. this can be enjoyed anytime. Cider simply doesn't get better than this! DAVID BURKITT, vintage and vine
