Presentation When in 1942 the Appellation Calvados Pays d'Auge was created its regulations imposed no minimum aging. In those days, most Calvados was consumed uncoloured. It was called "La Blanche". Then, step by step, a minimum 2 year aging in oak casks was required. Now Calvados Christian Drouin offers a new start to La Blanche. Copper still double distilled and produced from over thirty varieties of cider apples. La Blanche Awards Silver Medal, San Francisco World Spirit, 2007 (USA) Highly Recommended, Wine Enthousiast 2007 Highly Recommended, Spirit Journal, 2006 (USA) Gold Medal, Estonian Wine Challenge (2004)

Tasting note: A distillation of cider. Silvery / perfectly clear appearance. Early varnish gives way to beautifully defined aromas of stewed apple / apple tart becoming more keenly cider-like after aeration. Outstanding purity. Bursts with cidery goodness: Juicy apple and pear flavors are carried by warming alcohol and crisp acid. Finishes fine, dry, apply, long. Delicious.
