Proof66 Notes

Coeur de Lion Selection is a younger calvados coming not from Pays d'Auge but rather Domfront, where they feel the fruit is better suited to younger expressions.

Domaine Calvados Christian Drouin was founded in 1960 by Christian Drouin when he purchased a farm in Gonnerville, Normandy of France and used the apple orchard for for calvados.

First disclaimer: I cannot compare with other Calvados/Brandy. Nose: fruity, pleasant. Understand that the regulated region from which this comes permits the addition of pear cider. It is fruity. Front is fruity also, the palate giving some oak. The finish is not remarkable, nor does it have lingering sweetness. The oak lingers in the back of the throat, but is not objectionable. I suspect that the aged product from the family orchards would be superior. Like all Brandy, Cognac - the finest Calvados can be quite expensive. Thus, I will never be able to furnish a comparison review. I've had this around for several years and it is not a "go to" bottle. It might be really superior for a young Domfront. Dunno. I added 1 star for the "dunno".
