Marquis de Saint-Loup Calvados AOC Pays D'Auge 1987 Millésime

This smooth AOC Pays D’Auge Calvados is drawn from one, unique distillation batch from 1987 that was first put in old oak casks and then moved to former sherry casks for a year of maturing. 750 ML bottles. In individual gift boxes. 40% alc/vol.

Tasting Notes

A delightfully smooth, rich nose with hints of dried and candied fruit such as prune and cherry. It also has surprising and subtle confectionary aromas. It has a full-bodied mouth with supple, blended tannins and a good structure with a finish hinting of bergamot. 

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.
