MORIN CALVADOS - V.S.O.P
AOP Calvados Controlee
This is aged for 4-6 years. A bright amber colour with more delicate and subtle fruit compared to the selection. Hints of sweet oak spice and vanilla give way to a long fruity tail note.
Pierre Morin began making Calvados in 1889 and his style comes from two factors - all of the eau-de-vie starts its life in Limousin oak barrels and then are eventually moved into diferent areas of the cellars where variances in warmth and humidity affect the aging process and bring in a degree of oxidation.
They work with a number of local farmers and distillers who present their spirits too them every year for selection. Principally using cider varieties of apple Bedan, Douce Möen, Belle Fille de la Manche, Tête de Brebis, Argile Rouge and Petit Jaune. Some have bitter tannins providing body and structure and bitter sweet varieties provide fruit and richness.
