Lemorton Reserve Calvados

Calvados made from a majority of pears can have a wild, volatile edge, that I find here in this six-year-old bottling from Lemorton. Although the wild edge is pleasantly kept in balance. This amber-colored spirit has rich fruity and floral aromas that give way to a palate of good freshness and structure, with a note of membrillo on the midpalate and a juicy finish. (AOC Domfrontais, 40% abv.) 92 Points  Jason Wilson, Vinous November 2018

Aromas of pear, vanilla, spice and toffee. Apples with a bit of smokiness comes up midway on the palate and on the finish. D&M Tasting Notes 

The Lemorton family has a long history in the Domfrontais. Roger is the fifth generation and his son now runs the domaine. Their 9-acre property is planted with both apple and pear trees; the latter's influence is dominant; for every three apples in their Calvados, there are approximately seven pears. 

The Lemorton's distill their cider after aging it for eleven months in oak barrels. Distillation takes place in their own alambic, a single-distillation unit that distills to about 140 proof. The clear spirit then goes into barrels which have an average age of 30 years. Charles Neal, Importer
