Best French Cider selection?

Pei Aug 23, 2006 09:21 PM

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.

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

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

        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.

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

              Ooh--it doesn't look like that hyperlink went in right. Anyway, they were touting Eric Bourdelet Sydre.

                Mmmm ... maybe Cap'n Cork Jr. Market in Los Feliz (on Hillhurst)? I seem to remember them having a selection of odd dry ciders last time I looked.

                  i saw eric bordelet cider for sell at silverlake wine shop a few weeks ago, i think it was the brut and the doux. i cant quite recall, but that might be a good spot to look. silverlake wine is on glendale street.

                  lou's wine bar also was serving it for awhile, but i think they took it off the menu, or only sell it by the bottle only. i would call in advance if you are thinking about going there too.

                  good luck!!!
