- 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.

Un concentré de fruit Ce calvados est un vrai délice. On est clairement sur la pomme et le fruit. Elle explose au nez et en bouche on est sur une attaque très fruité, assez vive mais qui reste assez rond malgré tout.Aucun goût de bois, de fumé ou de vieux calvados (un autre univers). Un vrai bon calvados de découverte à un très bon prix.
