Eric Bordelet Poire Authentique - Normandy, France - Pear 750ml
A sparkling pear cider straight from Normandy, France. Eric Bordelet uses his family pear orchards, estimated to be about 300-years-old, to produce this cuve. Very pretty with floral pear aromas, a hint of sweetness, and fresh acidity.
