Two years of an aging in oaks casks give a gold colour to the fruity taste of its youth.

Vigorous and fresh on the palate, it's a product carrying the "Appellation d'Origine Controlee Pays d'Auge". All the fragrances of Normandy!

The apple is the basic ingredient to make quality Calvados.The mild and damp weather and clayed soil of the Pays d'Auge give the Chateau du Breuil ideal growing conditions for its 22,000 apple trees which surround the castle.

The Chateau du Breuil company produces its own cider, coming from a 100% natural fermentation. Their know-how and experience are the strengths of the Chateau du Breuil which gives priority to high quality rather to quantity. When cider has reached its proper flavour, distillation can start.

Sharp, bitter and lacking a good apple flavour, the Fine is extremely disappointing compared to its older VSOP cousin. This is very much a case of "bottle up anything that isn't good enough to go in an older blend". It is hard to drink neat, uninspiring when diluted and its tame flavour makes it unsuitable even for cooking.
