Details

The 30 year old Dupont calvados is quite special as it has many fine qualities only associated with much older calvados. Dupont hs always made superb calvados and this is no exception. A very large difficulty with making calvados is the need to use pears for acidity which leave a pear drop flavour. In the 30 y.o. the pear drop aroma and flavour is not very noticeable and it is well balanced and smooth.

Additional Information

Aroma This is quite rich and fruity but not losing the apple aroma, combined with rose hip jelly and burnt raw tobacco
Ageing Dupont age all their calvados in oak barrels
Distillation Double distillation on Charente Alembic stills
Flavour There is a smooth taste but there is a richness and style that is far superior to many other calvados products. Starts with a yeast dough flavour and develops into dried apple, finishing with mace. Good balance
Grape Variety Calvados is of course made from a cidre which is produced from a range different apples which are all picked from the trees
Reduction and Strength Some reduction does take place
Viticulture The Normandy apple plantations are quite unique since they are used almost solely for the production of calvados. Many apples are grown today on the new low variety of trees
