Christian Drouin Domaine Coeur de Lion Selection Calvados Pays d'AugeBrandy
"This young Calvados from Christian Drouin is made from a blend of 70% apple and 30% pear and is produced outside Pays d’Auge in a column still. A delightfully drinkable and balanced young brandy, greenish-yellow in color, with bright pear jam and honeysuckle on the nose. In the mouth, it’s intense and juicy, like biting into fresh fruit, with flavors of pear tart, on the midpalate and a spicy, peppercorn finish. For the price, it can be enjoyed neat or in cocktails."

"Warm aromas of baked apple and Anjou pear waft from this stylish digestive. The palate continues in orchard tones with surprising fresh fruit framed in a decadent outline of toasted French vanilla. A sophisticated ending to a grand meal."
