Traditionally, The Dupont family of Pays dAuge (a part of Normandy) were, as most of their neighbours, farmers of things like beef and cereals, and would make calvados (apple liqueur) as a liquid asset for when times were tough financially. With the succession of Etienne Dupont in 1980, their older orchids were given a facelift, and an additional ten acres planted. Today the domain has about 27 hectares of orchard with all the varieties required to make award winning traditional ciders and calvados. Their soil is mainly marls and marly chalks, producing fruits with low yields that are rich and complex, allowing them to produce a large range of traditional and innovative products.
After serving the cider, the foam dissappears, but an intense carbonation remains. Copper color, slightly hazy. A sedimentation can appear in the bottom of the bottle. Powerful and complex aroma with a nice balance between bitterness and acidity. Dominant are acidic apples, pineapple and dried fruits. The taste is of apples, pineapple and honey.
The Cidre Organique Etienne Dupont can be served as an aperitif, but also during the meal as an accompaniment with poultry or fish cooked with cream.It can also be served as an accompaniment to cheese (made with cow milk: Camembert, Pont-lEvêque, Livarot), apple desserts. Cider is also an excellent and a very traditionnal drink with salty and sweet pancakes.
