Tasting Notes

"With its moderate price and fairly young age, Roger Groult's 3 year old Calvados is a natural choice for cocktails, but don't let that put one off of sipping it neat. It has the bright, crisp acidity of fresh apple flesh, along with woodsy tannins and just a hint of vanilla. It's a fantastic value for the price, making it an easy addition to any home bar."
