Jérôme Forget - Vinot Poiré Normandy Perry 2022 (750 mL)

Jérôme Forget - Vinot Poiré Normandy Perry 2022 (750 mL)

Jerome Forget's farm (Ferme de l'Yonnière) based orchard in the Normandy region of France is home to 200+ year old apple and pear trees. His Poire Vinot is a favorite annual release of ours. Named after the primary pear variety used, Vinot, this perry also includes Pomera and Plant de Blanc pears varieties - all of which are indigenous to the Domfront area of Normandy. 

The pears for this perry are handpicked from massive 200+ year old trees, slow pressed, and then naturally/spontaneously fermented with the native yeast living on the fruit/orchard. Bottled prior to fermentation completing to create a natural sparkle and a living product (pét nat method). Unfiltered. No added sulfites.

2022 Vintage (harvest season for the fruit) newly available in the U.S. as of May 2024. 

Tasting Notes: This perry has a consistent sparkle in the glass. Soft aromatics of pear drop (candied pear) and honeysuckle. Dry with balanced, soft tannins and acidity (medium/medium). Flavor notes of fresh pear, candied pear, green fruit, and subtle minerality that lingers along side the tannins through a dry finish. Delightful. 

About Jerome Forget: At Ferme de L’Yonnière, Jérôme harvests 15 hectares of high-tree orchards in which all fruit is hand-picked. His fruit trees are indigenous apple and pear varieties that are surrounded by pastures and Normandy cows - true to traditions for cider orchards in this region of France. Most of his trees are 200 years old or more and all fruit is hand picked from the ground, ensuring that only ripe fruit is collected.

Only local varieties of apple or pear are used for his cider & perry. Natural fermentation is via the ambient/indigenous yeast from the trees & pasture. This natural fermentation tends to work very slowly allowing for a lot of flavor to develop. The sparkle comes naturally from a second in-bottle fermentation. Jérôme does not use any chemicals in his pasture or in his cidery. No sulfur are added at any time so all sulfites are naturally occurring.

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.

We offer home delivery of cider orders for customers in the Seattle area, including the east-side. Someone 21+ must be available to accept the delivery. We will be flexible in scheduling a delivery that works for you. Most deliveries are made within a few days of the order being placed.
