A young, vibrant calvados distilled from apple and pear.
This 2013 vintage comes from distiller/farmer Victor Gontier, who’s located in the Domfrontais region.
According to the importers, “Long after the outcome of mobile phones, calling Victor Gontier on the only landline by their entrance door, one would enjoy a cacophony of chook noises , roosters calls, pigs squeals in the courtyard, confirming the authenticity of the place and thus of its production.”
The controlled Domfrontais appellation requires at least 35 percent pear juice, which gives a softer character and lends itself to quicker maturation.
