Eric Bordelet - Poire Authentique Cider
Eric Bordelet's Poire Authentique is a gorgeous pear cider. Over a dozen varieties of pears are used, all farmed organically and with biodynamic practices. This is made in a dry style and is a wonderful match for charcuterie and cheeses, particularly Chevre.
Eric Bordelet Description
After a long apprenticeship with some of the greatest names in the restaurant business and the world of wine, former sommelier, Eric Bordelet, took over the family business in 1992.
The property consists of 23 hectares of certified organic cider apple, perry and corme orchards. Organic cultivation, alongside bio-dynamic soil treatments are currently the best adapted methods in terms of the quality of fruit. Our orchards have been certified organic since 1996.
Situated in southern Normandy on the massif Armorican, extending from the Domfrontais to the edge of the Mayenne and the Orne. The property is situated on the great brioverien schists, “Grand Crus” sedimentary rocks from the Precambrian era. "Argelette” is an iron rich reddish rock, schist like and quite soft, formed during the primary era and around 3 million years old. “Granit” was formed in the tertiary era, hard because it is young, the fusion of two elements makes up the complexity of the soil and the limono-clay sub-soil.
