Dupont Calvados Fine is a premium French spirit that is aged for a minimum of 2 years in oak barrels with 50% new oak. The production of this A.O.C. Calvados du Pays d’Auge spirit involves a careful selection of apples, which are grown on clay and Oxfordian marl soil. Moreover, the apple varieties used for Calvados Fine are 80% bittersweet apples and 20% acid apples, harvested from September to November.

To produce the Fine, the apples undergo a rigorous process. First, they are mixed, crushed, and pressed to obtain apple juice, which is then fermented into cider. Next, the cider undergoes double-distillation, with the first distillation producing “petite eau” at 30% volume, and the second distillation, that of the “petite eau,” giving rise to Calvados. Finally, the Calvados is aged for a minimum of two years in toasted 400-liter oak barrels, with 50% new oak, and is bottled upon order.

When it comes to tasting, Calvados Fine presents a beautiful golden-yellow color, clear, and brilliant. In addition, the nose is fine, complex, and very intense, with aromas of apple, pear, vanilla, and citrus, accompanied by earthy hints. The mouthfeel is round and fresh, with fruity aromas of vanilla and dried fruits, and a well-integrated whole with good intensity.

Hence, Calvados Fine is a versatile spirit that can be enjoyed in various ways. As an aperitif, it can be enjoyed on its own, over ice, or with a drop or two of water to let it release its aromas. For cooking, Calvados Fine can be used to flambé dishes, or to make sorbets and granités. As a digestive, it should be served at a drinking temperature of 20-22°C (68 to 72°F) and given time to breathe. It is a very gastronomic spirit that accompanies dark chocolate and fine cigars.

Calvados Fine has a very long shelf life and can be stored upright without any special precautions. With its premium quality, complex flavors, and versatile nature, Calvados Fine is an excellent choice for both connoisseurs and amateurs alike. In conclusion, Calvados Fine is a spirit that embodies the craftsmanship and expertise of the French distilling industry, and is a must-try for anyone looking for a refined and flavorful drinking experience.
