It is really an intermediate Calvados between the fruit and the complexity of certain aromas with a beautiful length in mouth. Old vanilla creamy smelling with plum and rhubarb crumble: Complex although the oak is a little prominent on the nose. Really tangy and rich in the mouth though, has lots of flavour, almost quince paste. Very, very long and deliciously spicy.
Crisp, classic apple notes are fresh on the nose, touched with lively menthol, cocoa powder, and gentle astringency. The body is lush with the essence of a boozy apple pie — fresh and baked apples, vanilla, toffee, cinnamon, and a gingery finish. Straightforward but sophisticated and well-crafted, it’s a near-perfect expression of a younger apple brandy.
This Calvados has been aged over 15 years in small oak casks and shows the complexity that makes Christian Drouin "Coeur de Lion" the star of Calvados. The colour is flamboyant amber flame like; the nose is complex and balanced. On the palate, it is smooth, dominated by wood and spices, with great length.
It's delicious calvados beautiful amber-brown color with a stylish, refined taste with notes of candied apples and spices. This strong drink is made of assemblage spirits aged in the finest oak casks for at least 25 years of age.
