Calvados Lemorton

Calvados 'Selection'

Calvados 'Selection', Lemorton
  • Calvados distilled by Didier Lemorton at La Baillée Fétu in Mantilly, in the Domfrontais Region of Normandy
  • Juice is naturally fermented on the lees in large wooden foudres or tonneaux for 9–10 months
  • Distilled from pears (70–80%) and apples (the appellation requires a minimum of 30% pear)
  • Single distillation occurs on a traveling, wood-fired, copper column still co-owned by Lemorton and two other Calvados producers in the area
  • Aged a minimum of 3 years in used French oak
  • Aromas of sage, stewed apple & pear, and brioche trasition to a drying palate of tobacco and cinnamon. A hint of crème caramels whispers on the finish.
  • Voted #12 on VinePair’s 50 Best Spirits of 2021
  • 43% ABV

For fans of oxidized flavors and a touch of funk, this compelling cocktailing component works beautifully paired with, or substituted for, whiskey and is complemented by baking spice and savory herbs.
