The cider was an Etienne Dupont Cidre Triple from the 2013 vintage. Per the label it was produced from a selection of bitter apples from the Pays D'Auge area of Normandy. I was familiar with the regular cider from Dupont, but not this much stronger Triple. It checked in at 11% alcohol.
Dinner was some grilled swordfish and a slaw of fennel, apples and crushed juniper berries. It was good with the fish, but it was tremendous with the slaw, which was dressed with lemon juice and olive oil.
2013 Etienne Dupont Cidre Triple. 11% alcohol and $9.
