Best French Cider selection?

Does anyone know where in LA I can find Duponte Cider? I just got a rec. for it on the beer board.

More generally, what places have a good selection of French apple cider? I'm looking for stuff that's more beery than fruity, but with an aftertaste of apple.

Ephemere was another one I was recommended, but I haven't been able to find it in West LA.

Lindemann's Pomme is dreadfully candylike, as is Beloit.

  1. I think Galco has a few but I am not sure which ones they have or if they still carry them.

    1. Du Vin generally has a good selection, including Duponte if memory serves.

      1. The Dupont organic Cider and Ephemere are both sold at the new wine shop BottleRock in Culver City, as well as Poire cider.

          Can you please tell me where that is? I tried a yellowpages search for Bottle Rock and Bottlerock, but neither yielded anything. Thanks a mill.

          2. The last newsletter at the Wine Country in Signal Hill talked about their cider selection:
