Keep it natural, baby.
Normand and cider fan, I had to make my cider, my drink when it's hot, very hot. Hellcider was born from this desire. This diversification makes it possible to touch other elements, other techniques, other knowledge. Hell cider is a dry, raw, no-input cider.
The apples are bought in Normandy and sent to Auvergne in big bags. The apples come from an orchard without treatment and eco-grazed by sheep. Once arrived in Auvergne, they are pressed and after a few days of waiting and the creation of the hat, the fermentation starts on its own. I check this fermentation regularly to obtain a cider with great aromatic finesse. Bottling is done at a low density. Fermentation continues in the bottle to create the foam.
HeavenCider has slightly more residual sugar than HellCider and is a little less funky.
No Control consists of 5 hectares of vines, where one can find several grape varieties : gamay, pinot noir, syrah, chardonnay, sauvignon, sylvaner and pinot auxerrois.
This allows them to make between 5 and 7 cuvees.
No Control also has an impressive diverse range of terroirs born from recent and former volcanic activity. This gives the wines typical features and a specific mineral taste.
Enjoy the tasting.
