18. For the purposes of subparagraph 1 of the first paragraph of section 17,
(1) the designations “strong cider” and “light cider” may be replaced by “cidre de cru” preceded or followed by the name of the holder’s agricultural operation if the cider has not been enriched otherwise than by the addition of apple juice and the cider is made entirely from apples from that agricultural operation;
(2) the designations “strong cider” and “light cider” may be replaced by the single word “cider”;
(3) the designation “light cider” may be replaced by “early cider” or “nouveau cider” if the cider has been made from summer apples, has an actual alcoholic strength of not more than 3% by volume, has no sugar added during production, and is marketed by the holder between 15 September and 31 December of the year in which the apples used in the production process were grown; and
(4) the designation “aperitif cider” may be replaced by “vermouth cider” or “apple vermouth” if the cider has the typical characteristics of a vermouth as a result of the flavouring obtained by the use of derived substances, in particular the Artemisia species.
