Clos Normand Cider

There are more and more ciders appearing on store shelves in this area, and that's a good thing.  The latest one I've tried was the Clos Normand Brut.  It was a beautiful golden color and had a moderate aroma of apples and a good amount of bubbles in the glass.  The lack of a strong aroma made me suspect a bit, but the taste was pure, refined apple.  Crisp without being tart and mellow without being flat.  It was a good choice for a Kentucky Derby party with pork ribs.  It definitely stood up to the flavors in the ribs and was simple and good.

Clos Normand Brut Cider.  4% alcohol and $4 for a 750 ml bottle.  Good buy.
