Tasting Notes

The famous yet hard to find Pommeau de Normandie is made with the apple cider of the region fortified with the legendary apple brandy known as Calvados. This offering from the venerable Drouin estate delivers all the goods for an incomparable value. The nose displays a classic interplay of fresh apple aromas mixed with sweet spice box and earth driven richness. This is so easy to drink and perhaps the most versatile beverage we've come across.

Staff Pick Notes

Sad to say it, but summer is almost over. Thoughts of rosé and crisp, lean, whites are now veering towards orchard fruit, pie, and holiday meals. Christian Drouhin's Pommeau de Normandie fits the bill perfectly! It is a bright, earthy, fruit-driven blend of Calvados and apple cider. (What is Calvados, you ask? It is an apple brandy made in the Calvados region of Normandy.) It tastes like an earthy, fresh-baked apple pie, sweetened only with its own fresh pressed cider. This is all about soft fruit and baking spice. Sip it after dinner. Give some to Grandma! Pass it around for some holiday cheer!!
