CHRISTIAN DROUIN 15 ans Pomme Prisonniere LMDW Cellar Book Carafe Of 40%
Calvados, France / Normandie, 1L, Ref: 53735
Maison Christian Drouin selected a 15-year-old Pays d’Auge Calvados to create this rare take on Pomme Prisonnière. Alternating between moments of pure fruit and incredibly noble woody sequences, this cuvée express apple in all its forms to great success. In turn juicy, effervescent, floral, full of spice and crunchy, this wonderful Prisonnière does everything to ensure you cannot resist its charm and in turn become its prisoner.
Profile: at once fresh and heady, the nose reveals various varieties of apple whilst being marked by notes of beeswax and ginger. The attack is particularly effervescent and cider-like. Gradually it becomes delicately woody and vanilla. The finish invites us to bite into an apple. Peppermint and blonde tobacco punctuate the gustatory palette.

- Appearance : deep golden yellow.
- Nose : fresh and heady. Fresh in the way it reveals different varieties of crunchy and juicy apples with incredible precision. And heady in its dominant notes of beeswax and candied ginger. Allowed to breathe, it becomes creamier, with more vanilla. Then, incense gradually fills the aromatic palette. Remaining ever-true to the fruit, the nose is like peeling an apple.
- Palate : juicy, generous. The very cidery attack is at first effervescent, before gradually becoming floral (apple trees in bloom, peony). The vanilla, almost praline mid-palate is also spicy (clove, nutmeg). Gradually, a refined roasted wood (coffee) covers the taste buds. The end of the palate magnificently maintains the juicy character of the gustatory palette. Apple then takes on the appearance of stunning Prisonnière.
- Overall : soft, silky. Here too, the sensation of biting into a perfectly ripe apple is impressively recreated. Its juice floods the palate. A handful of citrus fruits (lemon, grapefruit) bring a pleasant moment of welcome acidity. The retro-nasal olfaction returns to spice (candied ginger), adding an interesting herbaceous note (peppermint). The empty glass is characterised by notes of blonde tobacco and, of course, ripe apple.
- 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.
