Julien Fremont Reserve Calvados 750ml
Apples are hand harvested, then, for the fruit that needs it, stored in an attic in order to slightly dehyrate the fruit and increase the concentration. The apples are then mashed to obtain a pulp that macerates for a few hours before being pressed through a web cloth to gather the juices. The juice is then racked into large barrels where it ferments until completely dry. It will later be distilled one two or three years later. This apple eau de vie will then be racked to barrel to lose alcohol (from 70% to 42%), soften and gain sweetness from the tannins in the wood.
Julien Frémont makes the best Calvados in the universe.
