Calvados VSOP

NV/MV France Normandy
91 Points

Copper penny-bright in the glass, this blend of 4- to 10-year-old brandies offers a lively scent that mixes baked apple, fresh pear, cedar and vanilla. A burst of baking spice leads the palate, smoothed by concentrated caramel, which slides into a lightly sweet finish laced with orange peel and baked apple.

Calvados Auguste

NV/MV France Normandy
95 Points

The pungent aromas are that of a fresh apple grove, bright, sweet and floral. Clean in the mouth with more spice than fruit, brown sugar, light caramel and spice cake dominate the flavors, finishing soft and perfumed.

Rich aromas of spiced apple cake, apple tart, and sweet cider are complex and enticing. Equal depth on the palate offers deeply concentrated flavors of roasted apples, mace, nutmeg and medium dark caramel that carry on through the long finish.

Calvados X.O.

NV/MV France Normandy
95 Points

Powerful and voluptuous, this topaz-hued beauty features warm vanilla, cinnamon and concentrated fruit. Full bodied and weighty on the tongue, the long, spicy finish may remind some of mulled apple cider;except this is the real deal. Made with a blend of Calvados aged from 8-40 years.
