Staff Pick Notes

When it comes to postprandial sips I tend to reach for Armagnac or Scotch; Calvados is usually nothing more than a faint flicker on my radar. This hors d'age from Pacory, however, lit up all kinds of pleasure centers in my brain.The Pacory family has been farming in the Domfrontais since the early 1800’s but didn't start selling their ciders and Calvados until 1959. Today the 90-hectare property has 700 pear trees (many of them over 100 years old) and 400 apple trees, all grown organically. This is a blend of 70% pear, 30% apple and aged for 8 years in barrel. For me this hits the Goldilocks zone: there's still plenty of ripe orchard fruit (the aromas fill the room!) but the years in barrel have taken off the baby fat, added notes of vanilla & baking spices, and harmonized all the elements into one fine, smooth sip.
