Lemorton, Calvados

Lemorton is a Calvados producer in the region of Domfrontais, a region that looks back on a long-standing tradition. A few years ago, Roger Lemorton, the son of Isidore, gave the administrative role to his son Didier, who is now leading the Calvados producer into its 3rd generation as a family business.

Typical for Calvados for Domfrontais, dominated by the elegant and feminine cider brandies of the House Lemorton, is to not only use apples but also pears from the tall trees of the Lemorton plantation: for every 7 pears there are only about 3 apples in the mix. The cider ages for 11 months in oak casks, before it is distilled in the household alembic over a wooden fire, the resultant brandy containing 70% ABV.

Because of the large pear content of this especially delicate cider brandy, it has to be aged for at least 5 years in the on-average 30 year-old oak casks à la maison. Lemorton has become quite famous for their especially old and supple cider brandies and vintages, which are offered at countless gourmet restaurants. Of course, the younger brandies of the house are also created in the traditional manner and reflect the terroir of the plantation authentically.

After 5 years of aging, this Calvados has been refined, losing its rougher young...

This cider brandy is straw golden, and the 5 years of aging in oak casks let the fine pear aroma shine, and the 5 years are already sufficient for the brandy to forfeit its young forcefulness.The fruit is accompanied nicely by floral notes, with a dapper finish.
