Lacroix d'OR

Speaking to the Epicureans, Lacroix d'Or is definitely an exceptional product. Offering hints of pear, spice and cinnamon, Lacroix d'Or exposes the magnitude of the aromatic apple frozen directly into the tree. Very long and persistent finish, this ice cider develops a roundness worthy of a great vintage.

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