A family made calvados from Domfrontais, supplementing the traditional apples that are the backbone of the spirit with pears. The cider is barrel aged before distillation and the spirit is matured for 25 years in oak to produce a well balanced and soft pear dominated calvados.
A genuinely well-aged calvados. There are not that many producers who make calvados with this much integrity (see Dupont for one of the other good ones!).

A truly incredible calvados at this price. The pear flavour although not yet fully available the the nose is well represented on the pallet, the apple and pear forming a partnership that warms and lingers. A mild toffee flavour thn serenades the taste and post drink delicates come to the fore. I think one should not allow a new year to arrive without reaquainting oneself with this treasure.
