Tasting Notes from the Curator

The Chateau du Breuil 8 Year Sauternes Cask Calvados is a masterful composition that dances across the palate with harmonious grace. Aged in noble Sauternes casks, it brings a symphony of warm, comforting apple pastry in the nose, invoking rustic images of apple orchards and autumnal spice markets. On the palate, its fruit-based notes of baked apples and white peach marry seamlessly with the richness of grape, creating a delicate yet profound flavor profile. The influence of Sauternes is evident in the custardy dessert-like characteristics it imparts, coupled with subtleties reminiscent of a light and lyrical white wine. The delicate interplay of spices and the botrytis-derived sweetness tell a story of innovation within tradition. It’s the texture, smooth yet brimming with complexity from the apple brandy and Sauternes influence that truly defines the uniqueness of this Calvados. The body is rich, full, commanding attention, yet it retains a serene quality that only comes from adept maturation techniques. This Calvados is more than a drink; it’s an exploration of history, a study of technique, and a heartfelt ode to the apple.
