The fruit of the first distillation at the Distillerie Des Ambres 2017 vintage was aged in old Cognac barrels in the cellar at Longère de la Croix. A luminous golden colour in the glass, this Calvados offers up a lively bouquet of citrus, followed by gently woody vanilla and coconut, enlivened by toasted notes of coffee and ginger. The fruit continues on the palate with assertive notes of fresh ginger and vanilla, delivering a powerful, elegant, and finely balanced Calvados.
Appellation Calvados Pays d’Auge Contrôlée
Distilled and aged at the estate
Colour : A bright, straw yellow
Nose : primarily floral aromas, with some leafy and gently woody notes (vanilla/coconut). A touch of acidity brings balance and freshness.
Palate : Round and generous, somewhat remarkably for a young Calvados, with the same aromas as on the nose. A good, long finish..
Neat as an aperitif, or over ice with tonic water and a wedge of lime. As a dessert, poured over an apple or pear sorbet. As a digestif.
