• Christian Drouin 1968 Coeur de Lion Calvados

This iconic estate, with its 17th half-timbered buildings, is a pilgrimage for many Calvados fans, situated on the road from seaside Trouville to Pont l'Eveque. “My father inoculated me with the Calvados virus,” says Christian Drouin, whose family used to produce small batches from their home orchard in the 1960s. But, it was Christian who saw that Calvados could be more than a farmhouse spirit, and set out to create a brandy that could be enjoyed by enthusiasts all over the world. His son, Guillaume, joined the company in 2004 and took over production in 2013. Guillaume’s innovative approach includes such experiments as unaged apple brandy called Blanche and Calvados finished in non-traditional barrels such as Sauternes, Banyuls, or port. But the heart of Drouin’s portfolio is its vintages, dating all the way back to 1939, one of the few Calvados to survive World War II. Jason Wilson, Vinous Media November 2018
