Calvados Busnel is the international leader in apple brandies, produced in France. 'Pays d'Auge' is the highest ranking in Calvados; the apples must be grown exclusively on this land and use a double-process copper still for double distillation.

Wine Enthusiast

Opening nosings offer concentrated oak, paraffin/melted candle and baked apple; bouquet expands incrementally as raisiny/pruny/dried red fruit and cocoa override the wood and wax aromas. Palate entry is long, properly oily and full-bodied; the flavor profile turns raisiny, chocolaty and coffee-like, with just a hint of seared pork sausage. Finishes long, fat, buttery and fruity.

Score: 90-95. —Paul Gregutt, August 01, 2005.
