About the wine
This is, to use and overused term, a high-funk cloudy cider that is an absolute rarity and is as delicious and novel a bottle you could purchase. Hyper-aromatic, and a length reminiscent of piquette - this is wild, deeply-cared-for Hell Cider from Vincent Marie of Domaine No Control working around the village of Volvic in the Auvergne.
Vinification: For this cider, the apples are purchased in cider country (Normandy, Northern France) and shipped to the Auvergne. The apples are sourced from an organically farmed orchard sans treatment and eco-grazed by sheep. Apples are directly pressed upon arrival. Spontaneous fermentation after a short rest takes place once enough oxygen is deprived. Bottled at "low density," the fermentation continues in-bottle which creates both the opacity and some slight bubble.
