Manoir du Kinkiz - Cidre de Fouesnant
Fouesnant is a commune on the south coast of Brittany (Finistère) in northwestern France. Fouesnant is renowned for its orchards and is regarded as the source of some of the very best Breton cider. Kinkiz’s Fouesnant cider is assembled from old apple varieties, all harvested by hand. The apples are then sorted manually, and pressing is done only when the fruit is at its peak ripeness (from late September to December). The fermentation is slow and ends with a 2 and ½ month bottle fermentation, giving the cider its very fine bubbles. This cider has a lot of personality and is well-defined by its roundness, persistent flavors of freshly cut apple, complemented by notes of butter, and hazelnut.
