1996 Christian Drouin Brandy Calvados Pays d'Auge

(0) No Reviews yet


For a 20 year old vintage Calvados this is remarkably complex. Finished in casks used to age Banyuls dessert wine, this takes on a dried apricot aroma that lasts through the finish. Accented by almonds and beeswax notes, this is intensely rich and voluptuous. If you're looking for a great deal in brandy, here it is!

Details

Orchard in a bottle, The Tradition of Normandy. The reputation of Christian Drouin Calvados is based on the patience and careful attention with which it is prepared. The history of producing apple cider at the Christian Drouin estate stretches as far back as 1638, when barrels of cider were offered as payment for a portion of the rent. Today, they are the premier producer of Calvados from entry level eau-du-vie to Vintage dated bottlings going back several decades.
