Dupont Calvados is aged of minimum 6 years in 400 litres oak casks of which 25% are new ones. The oaks come from the Loire Valley. The wood is slightly toasted so that the sap keeps its vanilla aromas. Bottling on demand. Alcohol strength 42%.
Appearence: Golden yellow with copper shades.
Nose: Fresh and elegant, intense, fruity and floral (geranium). The nose takes all its complexity after oxygenation, slightly oaked.
Taste: Smooth and balanced, with a good persistence. Very retro-nasal. It's a good compromise between the freshness of fruits and the concentration of old eaux de vie.
Aperitif: Plain or on ice or with a drop of water to enhance aromas.
Digestive: At a temperature around 52 to 54F.
Desert: With dark chocolate cakes.
