Eric Bordelet (Biodynamic) – Delicious Hard Pear and Apple Ciders
We first discovered Eric Bordelet’s wines in December of 1998 when the Sommelier at Jacky Dallais' La Promenade insisted we try it. It was delicious and memorable. We didn’t think we’d ever see it again, of course...
We were wrong. We first found some (a couple of years later) at a wine shop in SF. The next time we crossed paths, it was on the wine list at The Slanted Door (in SF). It’s not too hard to find now. The Wine Advocate has also reviewed three earlier vintages of the Poiré Granit, the most recent being the 2001 – 90 pts.
Joanne's Tasting Notes:
These wines aren't that hard to find. Look i at Wine Searcher.com and Weimax (who has a great write-up of Eric Bordelet) in SF. Bottle Barn in Santa Rosa and Berkeley Bowl in Berkeley also carry them. Some Whole Foods as well. Contact Beaune Imports to find a source near you. Here’s the Eric Bordelet link at their website. This link has some great photos, too.
