Marquis de Saint-Loup Calvados AOC Pays D'Auge 1977 Millésime

This complex yet supple AOC Pays D’Auge Calvados is drawn from one, unique distillation batch from 1977 that was put in old oak casks that previously held sherry. 750 ML bottles. In individual gift boxes. 40% alc/vol.

Enjoy the delightful flowery and spice aromas.  Beautiful mahogany color.  Clean straight nose showing surprising complexity with a blend of apples, and spices such as nutmeg.  Pleasant acidity in the mouth, classic, neat. A long-lasting finish.

The oldest Calvados deserve the greatest respect: Choose a liqueur glass such as a tulip glass or small brandy snifter, and pour your Marquis de Saint-Loup Calvados with care.  Warm it tenderly in the hollow of your hand.  Run the amber liquid slowly round the glass (held by the base) and admire its color and the patterns it traces on the sides of the glass. Calvados needs to breathe to develop its full qualities.  Wait for at least two minutes before bringing the glass up to your nose, finding the distance at which you can distinguish and absorb the subtle aromas. Then, take a few drops in your mouth before swallowing.  Now you are ready to truly savor your Calvados, sip by sip.  Take your time, and you will note a surprising development in flavor and taste. If you do not indulge too freely, your Calvados will leave a delicate fragrance on your palate.
