Details

Starting to develop a rancio richness, this is a drier calvados but full of apple flavours. It still has a cleanness but has lost some of the pear drop qualities that most calvados has in their first years.

Additional Information

Aroma Slightly musty apple with pear drop in the background
Ageing Dupont age all their calvados in oak barrels
Distillation Double distillation on Charente Alembic stills
Flavour Starts with flavours of mature pear, young apple and ugli fruit and ends with burnt sugar and mace
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
Reduction and Strength Some reduction does take place
Viticulture Rich and fertile land. 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
