1987 LeMorton Calvados Domfrontais (750ml)

SKU #1238865

The Lemorton's distill their cider after aging it for eleven months in oak barrels. Distillation takes place in their own alembic, a single-distillation unit that distills to about 140 proof. The clear spirit then goes into used barrels which have an average age of 30+ years. The excellent '87 vintage is still youthful despite its advanced age. Expect tons of intensity and power thanks to the high percentage pear brandy (Calvo from Domfrontais must be 30% pear, but LeMorton's are always closer to 80+%). Although it's powerful aromatically, it's definitely turned the corner and doesn't show the nervy side that the young pear distillates often have. Expect depth and power all in one taught package.

Country:

France

- 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.
