What they say

Calvados Didier Lemorton

Official tasting notes:

  • A fine freshness with « starburst » flavours to start.
  • And after taste both lively and dry, followed by hints of spices, caramelised vanilla, honey and hazel nuts
  • After swallowing, we can notice a lingering and intensity of the various flavours.

What I say

The next official age-statement bottle up in the order from the 5 year old Reserve is this 10 year old expression from Didier Lemorton, made in exactly the same way but aged for twice as long (at least).

My tasting notes:

  • Appearance: Copper bronze (12/20). medium-fine tears, fine legs
  • Nose: Stewed fruits, apples and honey, golden syrup and caramel, perfumed orchard blossom, polished oak wood, sweet and slightly cloying fresh pear.
  • Taste: Fresh apples and dstewed pears, toffee, caramel, rich fruits and gentle tannins with a touch of spice, honeyed nuts.
  • Finish: Long, medium-sweet with gentle spices

Overall

Balanced, sweet fruits, some fresh and some a little stewed, oak wood and gentle spices. Similar in profile to the 5 year old expression but with a little more depth.

Score 86/100
