Château du Breuil VSOP is distilled from fruit from the 42 hectares of hillside orchards before maturation in Troncais or Limousin oak. Soft and rounded.
Commercial, acceptable but not much more
A 'beginners' Calvados. Very correct, decent balance of front-end apples and some soft brown sugar age, an ideal 'first bottle' for someone interested in Calvados. However it's not a patch on the real thing: farmhouse distilled and aged Calvados, perhaps 2o+ years old: yes, a farmhouse calvados wont be cheap but the complexity of scents and tastes will bowl you over.
