750 mL bottle of Le Vulcain Poire Closevin 2022 Perry

Cidrerie du Vulcain - Poire Closevin 2022 (Perry, 750 mL)

Rare/Limited! Poire Closevin from Cidrerie du Vulcain is a perry made from a selection of mid-to-early harvest season varieties (mid-September to mid-October) such as Gaubert, Beauvais, Vinot, and Plant Roux pears. The variety which specifically marked this vintage is the Petit Blot, a small tangy variety that needs to be harvested as soon as it hits the ground due to its perfect ripeness.

The pure pear juice is fermented on its own wild yeasts and coarsely filtered on white clay. Ancestral method without disgorging: partial fermentation in stainless steel and resin vats, then in bottle. No added sulfites. 

Tasting Notes: Light color with golden highlights and a fine touch of green. Winey and deep nose, white flowers and white fruits, persimmon. Very broad and tense attack. Discreet bubbles. Rich, broad, crystalline and deep. Very long and saline finish, iodized impressions.

Cidrerie du Vulcain is a cider project from Jacques Perritaz - a legend amongst cider enthusiasts and wine lovers for his artful cider and perry making while in Switzerland. His in Swizterland included foraging apples and pears from over 150 trees, all regional varieties from old, high-branched trees with exceptionally small yields, harvested only every other year.

In 2022, Jacques bought a farm in Normandy, France in the Domfrontais - the French land of Poire (Perry)! It's the first time in 17 years producing ciders, coferments & perry that he now owns his orchard, his facility & his home (used to be the other way around in Switzerland: 100% rental, as no one lets go of real estate there). All the farming is organic, he also has sheeps, cows & chickens - a true farmer's dream for him.

For all of his cider and perry products, Jacques presses the fruit and then clarifies the juice before fermenting it slowly on indigenous yeasts in stainless steel and epoxy tanks. After the juice is fermented to half of its potential alcohol, he filters the cider to remove particulates, then decants into sealed vessels to allow “ancestral” secondary fermentation. He then draws off the lees, clarifies it, and then bottles the naturally-effervescent ciders.

If you're looking for a full case of this or any other cider, please e-mail us and we'll setup a special order for you. We can usually get more of any cider we feature in our shop, and offer a discount on full-case special orders. Most bottled ciders come in 12-bottle cases, and canned ciders come in 24-can cases. Some rare or limited ciders may not be eligible for a case order discount, but we can still get you a full case.

We ship cider in boxes that safely hold 4-bottles, 6-bottles, or 12-bottles. Order in one of those quantities (or multiples of those quantities) to maximize your shipping value. For example, if you order 2-3 ciders, there will be room left in the box and it won't meaningfully change the shipping costs to fill the box.

We do have 1-bottle boxes, but in most all instances it will cost the same to ship you a full 4-bottle box.

Shipping to a business address will usually save you a few bucks!

Shipping cost estimates:

  • Pacific Northwest/West Coast: Shipping anywhere in the Pacific Northwest or West Coast is relatively inexpensive. Almost all box sizes cost $16-21 to ship. Same is true for most destinations in the Mountain Time Zone.
  • Central Standard Time Zone / Midwest: A 4-bottle or 6-bottle box will usually cost $18-24 to ship. A 12-bottle box will usually cost $22-30 to ship. Variance depends on weight and how far from a FedEx/UPS shipping center your delivery address is.
  • East Coast: A 4-bottle or 6-bottle box will usually cost $20-25 to ship. A 12-bottle box will usually cost $25-35 to ship. Variance depends on weight and how far from a FedEx/UPS shipping center your delivery address is.

Important Shipping Information:

  • We are able to ship cider to most, but not all, states.
  • Legally, someone 21+ must be present at the time of delivery to sign for the cider. We cannot ship to PO Boxes or AFO/FPO addresses.
  • Shipping prices vary by weight and destination. How far you are from Seattle (where we ship from), and remote vs. central your shipping destination is, and how heavy your box is will make shipping vary.
  • The bigger the box, the less you pay in shipping on a per-bottle basis. We ship in 1, 4, 6, and 12 bottle boxes - order in those quantities for the best shipping value. The size of the box matters as much as the weight, so don't leave empty slots in your bottle box! Shipping 1-2 bottles will cost the same as shipping 4-6 bottles in most cases. Shipping a 12-bottle box is usually only $3-5 more than shipping a 4-6 bottle box.
  • Re-delivery and returns are the responsibility of the customer.
  • We don't recommend shipping during periods of extreme weather. If your area has weather of concern, please contact us and we can hold your order. 

We can usually accommodate rush requests for delivery or pickup. Please e-mail us at cider@pressthenpress.com or call/text us at (206)395-4008.
