Pays d’Auge Calvados

Fine

 

Denomination

Pays d’Auge Calvados, Appellation Pays d’Auge Contrôlée. Fine, 3 years old.

 

Orchards

A mixture of long-stemmed local varieties of cider apples, such as Saint Martin de Pont l’Evêque,

Fréquin, Rouge Duret, and  Moulin à Vent: Ranging from bitter and bitter-sweet, to bitter and sour. All of these fruits ripen on the tree and are harvested at full maturity.

 

Terroir

Hillside land in the Pays d'Auge: Soil is formed from colluvial clay flint, a high concentration of flint is present, the texture is from silty clay to clay.

 

Elaboration       

Our Fine AOP Pays d’Auge Calvados, is young, lively and fresh and made from the double distillation of cider that has spent 3 years in oak barrels. The first distillation transforms it into what is known as petite eau or brouillis. The second enables it to become Calvados, in which it loses half of its volume, meaning it is necessary to use about 14 litres of cider to make one litre of Calvados.

 

Tasting Notes

A young, dynamic and fruity Calvados, with a bright and pretty pale yellow robe. Its aromas of fresh apples give it its unique taste and round mouthfeel.

 

Serving Temperature: Room temperature.
