WHAT: Crémant St-Nicolas Sparkling Light Cider Rating: NNN
WHERE: St-Nicolas, Quebec
WHY: This is versatile stuff. Not-too-sweet apple sauce flavour, light bubbly mouth feel and a general easygoing drinkable quality. Great for cork-popping occasions that don't require major alcohol content. Mixed with Canadian whisky, it makes an autumnal, orchard-evoking variation on rye and ginger.
PRICE: 750 ml/$10.50
