Château de Hauteville
In 1992, Eric Bordelet (previously sommelier at ARPEGE, Alain Passard’s Restaurant in Paris) took over the production of this family property in Normandy on the Amoran Massif. Believing that cider and poire should be produced like wine, he grows 20 varieties of apple and 14 varieties of pears over 15 hectares divided into 3 hectares of 40-50 year old fruit orchards, 7 hectares of vineyards (planted and trellised in 1992), and 5 hectares of pear orchard dating back to 1992 all of which are cultivated according to biodynamic agricultural practices. He has dubbed his ciders “Sydre”, “Cydre” and “Sidre”, the former spelling of these words. Connoisseurs admire his entire artisan and apothecary style of working. His range includes several products, all worth the detour.
