Cidrerie & Verger St. Nicolas CIDRERIE ST-NICOLAS Pom'or Tradition 2009, Eastern Townships, Canada: Vintages Wine Panel: Bright, delicious, bubbly, refreshing apple cider that is true to what the style should be. Dry and very appley, but with an exceptional cleansing crispness on the mid-palate. Normandy-like. Finishes fairly long and filled with apple/citrus flavours. Try it with pork tenderloin, grilled salmon or apple crumble. My note: Love it! Pure sun-dappled apple goodness in this terrific cider. Zesty, refreshing and a fantastic low-alcohol alternative to wine. Drink: 2010-2011. 179473 7% M 750 mL  $12.95 Score: 89/100. June 26, 2010 Full Review
