15yr old Fines Calvados Pays d'Auge, Chateau de Breuil,
A blend of Calvados aged for a minimum of 15 years. In fact, it contains a small percentage of much older Calvados. Unlike Calvados "AOC", Calvados with the AOC "Pays d'Auge" requires cider apples produced in the Pays d'Auge area and a double distillation. It makes a finer Calvados, due to the quality of apples produced by the local soil, and to the elimination of the roughest parts of the alcohol during the distillations.
Ageing for at least 15 years in oak casks creates a rich and voluptuous brandy of great depth in this fine blend of AOC Pays d'Auge Calvados. It carries a fragrant apple bouquet, which then gives way to the gentle tannin of old, mature Calvados. Best enjoyed as an after dinner digestif.
