Feu Sacré

The "Feu Sacré" represents our passion for apples growing. Unique, this fortified fire cider evokes the full magnitude of the apple worked by fire and the impact of aging in oak barrels. The caramel and smoky wood notes give a taste of candied apple in a world of flavors. Nothing better with a smoked cheese or a good dark chocolate!

The southern orientation of the orchard in addition to a typical local microclimate in St-Joseph-du-Lac favors the cultivation of quality apples.

Blend

50% McIntosh | 50% Spartan

Winemaking

  1. Apples are harvested in the fall. These are then washed, crushed and pressed.
  2. What follows is a concentration of the musts by heat, a fortification in apple brandy and an aging of 6-18 months in oak barrels.

Tasting Notes

Caramel and apples coalesce into a whirlwind of spicy flavors. True to perfumes levied on olfaction, the power of wood is there. Ends with fatty notes.

Serving Temperature

Between 6 and 10 ºC

Aging Potential

5 to 10 years

Pairing

Delicious as an aperitif or digestif, with a strong cheese or dark chocolate. A perfect accompaniment to a creme brulee.
