V.S.O.P. is notable because it is made only from cider from apples harvested in the Pays d’Auge, an area covering barely 6% of Normandy. The character this soil gives the apples, combined with double distillation* in copper stills, offers the V.S.O.P. richness and length.
V.S.O.P. is blended from Calvados which has been aged in oak barrels for at least four years.
|Color - Superb dark golden color.
Nose - Heavily scented apple blossom aroma.
Palate - Delicious crisp flavour, harmoniously blending with the freshness of the fruit.

Baked, ripe, and candied apple leap from the glass. The amber color suggests the mouthfeel - voluptuous, rounded and silky with a hint of fruity sweetness. More baked apple and warm fall spices on the palate, with a round, weighty finish.
