Their VS AOC calvados is crafted, bottled, and aged at their estate from 30 varieties of Normandy and Brittany cider apples. These varieties thrive on the argilo-calcareous soil that consists of clay and limestone. The apples are left to drop from the trees, meaning they have reached full maturity. After they are harvested, they are pressed and fermented for several months. The cider is then distilled using a single column still. Then the distillate is aged in small oak casks that include ex-sherry, cognac, and port casks for 2 to 3 years. The resulting calvados is very fruity with additional dried fruit and spice notes.
