Intense fruity aromas evocative of red apples, gooseberries and blackberries. Sometimes more nutty and caramelized with a touch of acidity.
Named for Henri Michelin, but first described by Legrand of Yvetot in 1872, Normandy France. As an odd twist of fate, the apple rose to prominence in the English cider scene after the importation by the Woolhope Field Naturalist's Club.
