The Collective Review

A young, vibrant calvados distilled from apple and pear. This 2013 vintage comes from distiller/farmer Victor Gontier, who’s located in the Domfrontais region. According to the importers, “Long after the outcome of mobile phones, calling Victor Gontier on the only landline by their entrance door, one would enjoy a cacophony of chook noises , roosters calls, pigs squeals in the courtyard, confirming the authenticity of the place and thus of its production.” The controlled Domfrontais appellation requires at least 35 percent pear juice, which gives a softer character and lends itself to quicker maturation.

Tasting Notes

Calvados is an authentic apple brandy from Normandy, France. Victor Gontier is the quintessence of farmer distiller: long after the outcome of mobile phones, calling Victor Gontier on the only landline by their entrance door, one would enjoy a cacophony of chook noises, roosters calls and pigs squeals in the courtyard, confirming the authenticity of the place and thus of its production. With the superior quality brought by the Domfrontais Appellation (an AOC [Appellation of Controlled Origin] granted in 1985, requesting a minimum percentage of 35% of pear juice with the apple juice, amongst many other requests). The pear gives the Domfrontais Calvados a very fruity character. Victor Gontier famr products are heathy and robust in flavours. An authentic Calvados, with confit apple on the nose, quince paste on the palate and a lovely and long pear return from the back palate. Great match with cheeses from the region.
