Morin Pommeau de Normandie
Morin Pommeau de Normandie....$24.99
Pommeau de Normandie is a mistelle type of beverage, meaning the fruit must is fortified prior to the beginning of fermentation. Pommeau is made by mixing 2/3 apple must (unfermented apple juice) with 1/3 one-year-old Calvados brandy (these proportions result in an ABV of 16-18%). The mixture is stirred gently in vats before moving to oak barrels, then aged for around 30 months.
Bright and clear, a beautiful amber color, subtle flavors of stewed fruit, dried fruit, prunes, honey and cocoa.
