Argelette refers to the stony soil made of of silt and clay/silt and dates back to the Precambrian era.
Orchards are farmed biodynamically
Bordelet’s entire production of fruit is hand-picked in wooden cases. The apples are are crushed and left to macerate on their skins for more extraction.
Following the pressing, the alcoholic fermentation takes off, during which time the must is racked several times, and very lightly filtered. A small amount of residual is left in. The fruit is never chaptalized!
Best described as off-dry, this cider is perfect for aperitifs and light meals
