Details

The oldest calvados that we know of. It has a dried apple skin aroma and a slightly musty flavour consistent with these old calvas

Additional Information

Aroma Light apple aromas with a slightly musty and lingering finish indicating long ageing in oak
Ageing Aged in oak in damp cellars
Distillation We believe this to have been made on a mobile Normandy travelling still. It would have been distilled relatively slowly
Flavour A faint musty hint of dried apple provides a delicate flavour for this AOC calvados.
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 The mild and damp weather and clayed soil of the region provide ideal growing conditions for apple trees
