Château Du Breuil
Colour : Nice golden yellow Nose : Powerful and complex. It offers oak and cedar notes, and fruity notes like baked apple, vanilla and dried apricot. At last, there are also spicy notes such as liquorice and cinnamon. In mouth, this Calvados has a supple and long attack. The finish, more structured, opens gradually on wooden notes, liquorice and dried apricot. It reflects perfectly the aromatic nuances of the Pays d’Auge Calvados and the liqueur wines from the Coteaux du Layon.
