Marquis de Saint Loup


Appellation of Origin Contrôlée
Calvados Marquis de Saint-Loup is distilled from cider made from 30 varieties of apples from Normandy and Brittany introduced to France around the 12th century. As the harvest season starts in September, the apples are left to fall to the ground before being picked. By waiting for the fruit to fall, the apples have reached the perfect state of ripeness to become Calvados Marquis de Saint Loup. Calvados Marquis de Saint-Loup is aged in oak barrels. The more volatile compounds, which give the young liqueur its burning flavour, disappear with time. Calvados extracts several substances from the wood, including the tannins that give it colour and body. In contact with oxygen, the wood compounds dissolved in the spirit undergo a chemical transformation. This produces new aromas. The warehouses of the Marquis de Saint-Loup estate are full of small barrels, which allow more exchange between the spirit and the wood. The result is an acceleration of ageing, with the drawback of greater loss through evaporation, affectionately known as the 'angels' share'. Many of the barrels are former sherry and port casks. It has been observed that these re-used casks produce fewer bitter tannins and contribute to giving Calvados a finer colour, more body and greater aromatic richness. The Calvados of Domfrontais has an aromatic universe dominated by hints of fruit, because of this peculiarity it is possible to taste it young. For this reason, the Marquises of Saint Loup prefer to propose as "entrée de gamme" a Calvados elaborated in Domfront. Calvados produced in the geographical area of Domfront take their originality from the high percentage of pear cider used in conjunction with apple cider (30%); soil (shale and granite) and distillation process (only one distillation) contribute greatly to its typicality. Particularly suitable for those who love to take Calvados as an aperitif, such as long drinks (Calvados & Tonic), with ice (3cl. accompanied by 2 ice cubes) or with coffee (a little Calvados inside the cup of coffee). It is also perfect for making cocktails that require alcohol based on fruit, culinary recipes or apple slushes.
