Adrien Camut "Prestige" Calvados (750ml)

SKU #1000305

Praise from Decanter: "A highly-respected grower with one of the best collections of old Calvados around, normally showing notes of baked apples and licorice." Located in Normandy, the Camut family has farmed 115 acres and grown 25 different types of apples for centuries. They carefully craft cider from their apples, then age it for 11 months in barrel. The cider is double distilled from the property's wood-fueled stills (one is 75 years old!), then aged and transfered for years between neutral barrels and foudres until it achieves a luscious complexity. The Prestige is 40 to 50 years old. Tasting notes from the producer: "Deep Amber. Tremendous legs. Nutty vanilla on the nose. Deep notes of preserved, baked apple, smoke, and prune. Impeccably balanced, earthy complexity. Long, pure finish." Break out your snifter--this is the good stuff!

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
