~ Wine - or Cider - of the Week - Frédérick Goussin ~

Just in time for warmer weather, our Cider of the Week is the "Heritage 1900" from Frédérick Goussin. Located in the Pays d’Othe, an expansive forest that sits between the Aube River in Champagne and the Yonne River in Burgundy, Frédérick Goussin and his son-in-law Olivier Euillot are crafting all natural cider from an organic orchard of apple trees that are well over 100 years old. 

This is and has always been an orchard untouched by chemicals of any kind. Goussin makes his cider from thirteen different varietals of apple that reflect the deeply traditional nature of this cider. In keeping with the classical style of the ciderie, the ciders are made by méthode ancestrale and all bottles are disgorged by hand. The resulting cider is refined and delicate and provides an excellent alternative to beer or wine.
