Details

A clean fresh tasting calvados with distinctive pear tones. Pears are used in distillation to improve acidity. Apples alone do not provide sufficient acid levels , essential for distillation.

Additional Information

Aroma Fresh aroma. Currants and pears with drier walnut tones, with a sweet apple background
Distillation Cidre distilled in the same manner as cognac
Flavour Apples and pears with a hint of citrus, a dry finish lingers in the mouth for some time. This balance is developed from good distilling and the natural ageing process
Grape Variety Not a Grape but cidre made from apples and perry pear. The bitter/sweet apples are mainly picked and crushed in a membrane press to get the flavour from the skins. There are several varieties including Saint Martin, Noel des Champs, Mettais and Doux Normandie. The apples are small with high aromatic intensity
Viticulture Rich and fertile land
