Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : jaune doré, superbe.
  • Nose : ample, concentré. Au premier nez, des citrons confits mènent la danse avec beaucoup d’énergie. Dans leur sillage, bon nombre de variétés de pommes différentes mais aussi des amandes et des noix fraîches font leur apparition. Au fur et à mesure, il devient herbacé (foin coupé), exotique (ananas, banane) et épicé (poivre noir, muscade).
  • Palate : ferme, pleine de dynamisme. Elle commence par imposer d’entrée sa minéralité. Avec élégance, elle laisse s’exprimer à voix haute des fruits mûrs (pomme, pêche), des plantes aromatiques (verveine, sauge) et des fleurs blanches (muguet, lilas). Si le nez et la bouche empruntent des chemins différents, la même minéralité les anime.
  • Overall : douce, finement boisée. Le xérès et le pommeau ont livré une telle bataille qu’il est impossible de dire qui l’emporte. Au final, c’est le Calvados qui sort grandi de cette aventure gustative. La pureté des notes de pommes fraîchement cueillies qui se dégage en fin de bouche en témoigne. La rétro-olfaction est l’expression d’un distillat encore jeune, racé et vif. Du verre vide surgit une pomme très mûre.
The brand

The brand

Three generations from a family of enthusiasts have now handed down control of the Christian Drouin house, one of the greatest gems in the production of Calvados and in particular Calvados Pays d’Auge. Established in 1991 on a former stud farm in Coudray-Rabut near Pont l´Evêque, the estate boasts an exceptional range. In possession of the best and most comprehensive collection of old vintage Calvados - the oldest dating back to 1939 - Christian Drouin is to Calvados what Gordon & MacPhail is to whisky - a temple! Its cellar masters have been awarded numerous prizes in recognition of their skills.

The line

The latest addition to the Christian Drouin calvados collection, “Calvados Expressions” is an instructional range that offers both novices and calvados enthusiasts a deeper understanding of this magnificent multi-faceted apple brandy. Presented in several “expressions”, the range reveals the richness and complexity of this little known French eau de vie.
