Wine & Spirits 92: 'The chalk and clay soils of the South Downs provide a parallel to Champagne across the channel, lending this pinot-focused blend its minerality, if not the same line drive to its flavor depth. And it does have flavor depth under the notes of honeysuckle, mint and green peppercorn. It also has some limestone abrasion in its acidity, bringing out intriguing complexity in the finish. This is 40 percent pinot meunier, 26 percent pinot noir and 34 percent chardonnay. $55.'

Bordelet uses by-gone spellings of 'cidre' (cider) to emphasize his orchard's antique apple varieties, 19 of which make up this, his top cider. A complex of cooked apple, apricot, lemon, and baking spices, it's fully dry and even slightly tannic at the close. Like champagne, there are doughy as well as fruity notes and, in addition, a sense of 'terroir', an expression of the schist subsoil tapped by roots of trees over 100 years old. Boasting the finest of mousses, this is an age-worthy cider.
