Bottle Domaine Dupont Calvados plus de 20 ans

Calvados Plus de 20 ans (= "more than 20 years") has been aged for at least 20 years in a wooden vat and toasted oak barrels.

Terroir: Clay and Oxfordian marl soil.
Varieties:
 
80% of bittersweet apples
20% of acid apples
Harvesting:
from September to November
Alcohol content:
42 % vol.

Techniques used:
The apples are mixed, crushed and pressed. The apple juice is fermented right out to give cider to be distilled. Double distillation is carried out 6 months after the fermentation has taken place. The first distillation gives the "petite eau" at 30% by volume and it is the second distillation, that of the "petite eau" which gives the Calvados.
Aging: Twenty years minimum. In wooden vats and toasted 400 litre (88 imp gallon) oak barrels.

Tasting Notes:
Eyes: Mahogany colour. Clear and brilliant.
Nose: Very round. Earthy aromas, dried fruits with floral hints develop progressively. Great intensity.
Mouth: Spirituous, long and intense. Well balanced between the aromas of fruit and aging (grilled hazelnuts). Very silky and concentrated.

Suggestions:   (read also: Tasting Calvados >>)
- Storage: very long, bottles upright without special precautions.
- With the dessert: can accompany desserts based on apple and chocolate (mousse or cake).
- As a digestive: Drinking temperature 20-22°C (68 to 72°F). A great classic.
