Intense gold color. Powerful nose with apple compote, wooden notes, cinnamon and nutmeg. Supple and long finish with crème brûlée aromas.
This Calvados is not a blend. It was distilled in 2002, which means that it has been made with the apples of 2001 (it is not like wine). This Calvados is still aging because it is still in the oak casks. It is progressively bottled, according to the demand, which is very important for a vintage. Château du Breuil has decided to put on the market the most significant years only, like 2002. This year has brought this very complex and distinguished Calvados, with a unique taste of apple and wood. The bottling date is mentioned on the back label.
