Terroir Notes: Bordelet's property is situated in the south of Normandy on the Armorican Massif. Dating back to the Precambrian Era, the terroir includes red schist and granite, which imbue the fruit with minerality and texture. Bordelet uses about 22 different types of apple trees, 85% of which from heirloom varieties. All of the trees are pure varieties; there are no hybrids or cross-bred types. The newer trees are very densely planted and trellised whereas the older ones are more widely spaced. All farming is biodynamic, and the property is certified organic. The orchards are dry farmed.
