1980 LeMorton Calvados Domfrontais (750ml) (Previously $190)

SKU #1293526

Didier and Martine Lemorton have a wonderful farm. About one hundred cows fill their barn and orchards of pear and apple trees surround it. You can tell a lot about their lifestyle by shaking their hands.Their palms are hard and calloused from the hard manual labor they perform on a daily basis. They've never been on an airplane and they've never had a day off. Their Lemorton Calvados comes from the southern appellation of Domfrontais and in this appellation at least 30% of the cider in the Calvados must be made from pears. The 1980 vintage uses some of the oldest stocks from Didier's father's distillate and is both rich and robust in flavor. Spicy, still with plenty of fruit, theres a long rancio finish and plenty of brown apple as the flavor lingers long on the palate.

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.
