In a nutshell:
A wonderfully rich, well balanced and long aged XO Calvados
This XO Calvados is Berneroy's signature blend. It's aged for around 10 years in small French oak barrels which impart layer upon layer of complex flavours. It has a superbly rich and golden colour. On the nose there's a sublt spiciness among the oaky characteristics while on the palate indulgent flavours of baked and caramelised apples mix with notes of cinnamon spice, vanilla, butterscotch, a slight nuttiness and a hint of citrus. Wonderfully smooth and rounded this deserves being savoured as an after-dinner digestif.
Calvados, one of the worlds ?nest spirits, has been produced in the historic French region of Normandy for at least ?ve centuries. The Calvados Berneroy Master Blender employs time-honoured methods, and ?nely honed expertise to create a range of distinctively fruity calvados, capturing the very essence of the local orchards.
Over 180 named apple varieties are authorized for use in the making of Calvados Berneroy. These traditional cider apples are grown in the lush green fields of Normandy and harvested at the peak of ripeness, from mid-September to the end of November. The precious fruits are then washed, crushed, and pressed to produce an aromatic fresh apple must or juice.
