What they say

The La Cuvée Vincent expression from Boulard’s Calvados range is made with a blend of spirits that have been aged between three to six years in oak casks before being bottled. With a vibrant, exciting flavour profile, this would make for a great aperitif.

What I say

La Cuvée Vincent from Calvados Boulard is a blend of 3-6 year old matured stock, in their new range this is replaced with the 4+ year old VSOP expression which sounds of a similar flavour profile.

My tasting notes:

  • Appearance: Amber gold (9/20), numerous, slow, medium-fine tears and strong legs.
  • Nose: Sweet, vanilla, apple, bubblegum, blossom, hint of woody cinnamon spice, aniseed, buttery macadamia nut and brioche, estery and aromatic, caramel and oak wood.
  • Taste: Mellow body, baked apple, apple pie, buttery shortcrust pastry, peach, apricot, touch of citrus lemon, oak wood, caramel, vanilla, cashew nut and black pepper.
  • Finish: Long, drying with prickly black pepper spice.

Overall

A lovely mixture of soft, baked apples with peppery oak wood spice with some fruity and sour notes too.

Score 84/100
