«Truly the grand daddy of them all (ice ciders),/.../ The Méthode Traditionnelle represents one of their highest award winning ciders. Flavor notes of candid apple, apricots and citrus fruits lay under aromas of butterscotch and marmalade. Take in the cidery that set the gold standard, and dive right in».
Peter Holmstrom, Cidercraft magazine, March 23 2015

If Neige Première was the first Ice Cider to be known and the leading inspiration of La Face Cachée de la Pomme, Neige Méthode Traditionnelle was the very first crackling Ice Cider to be elaborated with great care using the Traditional Method.
The Traditional Method means that their was a second fermentation in the bottle... just like for champagne!
