Château du Breuil Calvados du Pays d'Auge VSOP has been aged for 4 years in barrels, emphasising its apple fruit while still expressing the finesse of the famed Pays d'Auge region.
The Château du Breuil Distillery takes great pride in its 42 hectares of orchards planted with 22,000 apple trees, set in the heart of Pays d’Auge, a region renowned for the excellence of its cider apples. The mild climate and clay rich soils give Château du Breuil the ideal conditions for growing apples.
This Calvados Pays d’Auge has Appellation Pays d’Auge Contrôlée status, a guarantee of quality that involves the natural fermentation of apple juice followed by a double distillation of the cider. Only the heart of the second distillation is kept for slow ageing in oak casks.
Château du Breuil pays extra special attention when choosing its casks since their quality, size and age play a crucial role in the quality of the ageing process. The subtle osmosis between wood and alcohol will determine the delicacy and bouquet of the Calvados.
Tasting Notes: Mild and well rounded, with flavours of ripe fruits and quince. Long finish with a slight bitterness of almond and pit. It's minimum ageing of 4 years gives it smoothness and roundness.
