Dupont Domaine Calvados VSOP Pays D'Auge 70 cl, 42 %
Calvados VSOP (Very Superior Old Pale) has aged 5 years in oak barrels, with 25% of new oak.
The apples are mixed, crushed and pressed. The apple juice is fermented right out to give cider to be distilled.
Double distillation is carried out 6 months after the fermentation has taken place. The first distillation gives the "petite eau" at 30% by volume
and it is the second distillation, that of the "petite eau" which gives the Calvados.
Aging: Five years minimum. In toasted 400 L (88 imperial gallon) oak barrels, 25% of which are new. Bottled when ordered.
