Dupont Pommeau de Normandie
|Availability:||In stock (3)|
Pommeau is produced by blending Calvados d'Appellation d'Origine Controlee, aged at least one year, and apple must. Apple must is the juice obtained just after pressing before fermentation begins. The mixture is obtained by successive additions of eau-de-vie. The respective quantities of must and Calvados are calculated in such a way as to obtain an alcoholic strength of 18%. After aging, the final percentage is 17%.
Pommeau is put into fairly new 400 litre (88 imperial gallon) oak barrels (used for 4 or 5 years and in which the tannins have not been completely exhausted), where it continues its gentle aging. It is bottled after about 30 months.
