Description: Eric Bordelet, once a sommelier in L'Apèrge, one of the top restaurants of the world, would leave to start one of the world's most successful craft cider estates. The eponymous cidery is located in Normandy, France, a region synonymous with cider and calvados production. Taking over his family cidery, Eric would implement techniques that would elevate this simple estate into something known around the world by sommeliers and enthusiasts alike, as the benchmark for craft cider. These ciders drink like wine with incredible precision, elegance and flavours. The Cormé is an endangered variety of tree fruit from the Sorbus Domestica family of fruit trees.
