The Louis Dupont Family estate consists of 30 hectares of orchards in Normandy, in the heart of the Pays d’Auge region.
This highly specialised product contains an attractive apple macerating in calvados. It is created in the spring when a carafe is suspended from the branch of the apple tree as soon as the first little apple appears; it then continues to grow inside. When the fruit has ripened the carafe is removed from the tree with its apple held captive inside.
Eyes: The end result of the Captive Apple is both visually attractive and very agreeable to taste. Colour, amber yellow. Clear and brilliant.
Nose: Gentle attack, great aromatic intensity. Green Apple, geranium, minty.
Mouth: Consistent, slightly bitter, the first taste is all green apples. The finish is vegetal, with a lot of breadth. Present at the back of the nose.
– Storage: So that the imprisoned apple is kept at its best, take care that the fruit is always covered with Calvados.
– As an Aperitif: on its own, on ice or with a drop or two of water to let it release its aromas.
– For cooking: flambéing, sorbets and granités.
– As a digestive: drink at room temperature from 20 to 22°C (68 to 72°F).
