Details

One of Dupont's very finest, this wonderful calva has deep richness and cooked apple flavours. Aged for almost 40 years, this carafe is one of a run of 290 bottled in 2016.

Additional Information

Aroma Sultanas and pears, vanilla and ripe apple
Distillation Cidre distilled in the same manner as cognac
Flavour Very rich with some fruit cake and sweet apple flavours. The pear is apparent but not overbearing and does not hide a wonderful rancio developed from the natural ageing
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. Perry pear is used to create added acidity for distillation
Viticulture Rich and fertile land
