Our oenologists' opinion
Shiny mahogany colour with copper glints. Nice frank and open nose, fruity with fresh apples then cooked apples, vanilla notes, milk caramel. Good balance, frank, round, enveloped, the character is well signed on apples and calvados. Good frank and fairly long finish.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.
Do you know ?
Traditionally, in western France, the best apple cider (or musts) juice were mixed with Calvados to conserve their flavours throughout the year. This operation, called "mutage", practised in secrecy within the family operations and whose expertise was jealously guarded for centuries, gave birth to the Pommeau.
Domain and appellation
Maison familiale MORIN
A family business founded in 1889 specialising in the production of "Top-of-the-range" Calvados. The company owes its reputation to a maturing technique unique in Normandy. The young Calvados are first of all housed in small oak barrels in (dry) cellars that are subject to climatic variations before being transferred to very humid underground troglodyte cellars where they will finish maturing.
Manufacture: The fruit of a judicious marriage (mutage) of cider apple must and Calvados selected and matured in oak barrels for a minimum of 12 to 14 months. A gentle aperitif!
