THE SECRET GARDEN OF CIDRE BLANC ET DORÉ
A dear célébration of friendship, a communion with flamboyant nature dressed in yellows, oranges and gold of the autumn, and an artless Joie de Vivre when the present cannot be shadowed by yesterday or dimmed by tomorrow, welcome to the secret garden of Cidres Blanc et Doré!
STASSEN CIDRES CIDRE BLANC ET DORÉ
As the warmth and verve of summer dim down, as the forest readies itself for sleep, the leaves flush shades of red, brown and gold magnifiques. A time to savor the golden light of late Autumn as the last outdoor diners are celebrated with friends and family under the forest canopy.
On long tables laid heavily with fruits, nuts and cheeses, glasses of chilled Cidre Blanc are first raised to toast the exquisite eve and to rejoice in the flavours and bounty of the forest. Later, as cheese and sweet treats are served and the lampions light up the descending night, the rich, amber-coloured Cidre Doré warms up the souls.
With subtle tones of clémentine, crisp apples and a bouquet hinting at citrus fruits, the still, dry Cidre Blanc is best served in a wine glass with light appetizers such as salads and white meat. The supple, full-bodied, and sophisticated, still, golden Cidre Doré is an inspired way to end evenings echantées spent with cheese and desserts, and long-time friends.
