CHRISTIAN DROUIN 6 year old Port cask 45%

Calvados, France / Normandie 70cl Ref: 5088

This calvados from Christian Drouin’s “Calvados Expressions” range has been aged for just over 5 years in red wine casks before being finished for 10 months in port casks. Perhaps that’s why the influence of the Lusitanian wine is so discreet and altruistic... One thing is sure, the more time passes, the more talkative the aromatic and gustatory palette becomes. Like the generous, tangy, crisp, spicy, herbaceous, mature finish that takes a crafty pleasure in prolonging its presence.

Single Cask #F34B2 - Port Cask Limited edition of 340 bottles Profile: mellow, well-balanced. The spicy, honeyed nose accompanies the now balsamic palate (cedar, pine). Generous finish.

Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : burnished gold
  • Nose : full-bodied, rich. Spices (cinnamon, nutmeg) mingle with heady florals (lily, azalea) on the initial nose. Allowed to breathe, it becomes camphorated, honeyed and waxy (beeswax), while candied fruits (apple, quince) give it great body and depth. It gradually takes on chocolate and liquorice notes.
  • Palate : mellow, balanced. Accentuating the spicy character of the nose (clove, black pepper, saffron), the palate is also vanilla and slightly rough (apple peel). The mid-palate is balsamic (cedar, pine). The port has a relatively minor influence on the taste palette: only currants and a trace of residual sugar hint at its presence.
  • Overall : serene, relatively generous. Creamy, it evokes patisserie, such as a Normandy apple tart. The acidity of the rhubarb combined with apple jelly help it regain energy. Crisp, it invites us to savour sweet, wonderfully delicious apples. The retro-nasal olfaction is marked by spices (star anise, ginger) and aromatic herbs. The empty glass is tertiary (emery cloth, noble wood) and heady (roses). It also offers the enveloping fragrances of a Havana cigar.
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.
