Chauffe Couer VSOP Calvados


43% ABV, 750 ml

"Aromas of baked apple and wood with subtle scents of nutmeg, apple peel, flowers and earth. Entry is austere at first then explodes in assertive waves of apple pastry, mineral, stone and oaky vanilla; a delicious layer of honey/light toffee is added at midpalate. Finish is elegant, dry to off-dry, and wonderfully toffee-like." 90-95 Points Wine Enthusiast

The Martayrol family owns its orchards and distillery in the village of Cambremer in the heart of the Pays d’Auge. According to an old family recipe, the apples are harvested, pressed and fermented into cider by varieties and then aged for 10 months or more. Also, according to that old receipe, the Chauffe-Coeur Calvados is a blend made of single-distilled and double-distilled Calvados, and therefore it has to lose the Pays d’Auge appellation for which all the Calvados have to be double distilled by law.
