    1995 Christian Drouin Pays d'Auge Port Cask Finish Calvados (700ml)

    Normandy, FRANCE
    $240. 00 Bottle
    $2880.00 Dozen
    ABV: 42%
    A nineteen year old Calvados finished in ex Port casks for twelve months.

    Tasting note: Deep copper / auburn colour. A touch of varnish followed by whiffs of baked apples, cinnamon and emerging oak, drying the nose-feel. Light, fruity entry develops body with green apple flavours and a peppery thrust. Astringency and spice almost overwhelm the final stages. At the tannic end of the scale, so best with food. 42% Alc./Vol.
