This is the very first designation of Calvados (1942), reserved for the geographic zone Pays d’Auge. The Calvados Pays d’Auge owes this designation to both its’ terroir and distillations means (double distillation via a traditional copper still) for having the maximum of natural qualities which creates the power and delicacy of a classy eau-de-vie: the subtleness of bouquet, the mildness of taste and its’ long finish, this persistence of flavour that lasts a long time after tasting. The calvados contains alcohol levels of approximately 70% upon leaving the still. It cannot be bottled before a minimum of 2 years. During this period, the calvados evolves and enhances in aromas; over the years the floral and fruity notes fade in favour of touches of almond, vanilla and dried fruit, then ripe fruit, licorice and woody aromas. The Calvados Busnel have the particularity of not being very woody, as by his expertise, the master cellar prefers to showcase the rest of the bouquet. In fact, when the wood is too pronounced it can mask the other aromas, limiting the subtlety of tasting. At the end of the process, the calvados always stems from blending (except for the millésime). Blending is a key step to the elaboration of calvados; during which the master cellar precisely chooses the calvados he wishes to blend. From the blending emerges the distinctive calvados from the Busnel House. The elaboration ends in the bottle. At this stage, the calvados ageing truly ends as it can be conserved numerous years without alteration. Nose: intense aromas of fresh apple Palate: medium-body, floral flavours balanced with notes fo fresh apple and a subtle almond finish
