A fantastic blend that got 93 points from Wine Enthusiast in 2021.

Pierre-Auguste Boulard was one of the first pioneers in the Calvados category a.k.a. an apple Brandy that can only be produced in the Normandy region in France. Kind of like Cognac, Champagne etc.,it needs to bear the AOC, which stands for Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée (Controlled Designation of Origin). In 1942, it was actually the Boulard family that supported the initiative that would lead to the creation of the AOC Calvados Pays d'Auge. The Boulard family has been producing Calvados at the same spot in the town of Coquainvilliers in French Normandy since 1825 when Pierre-Auguste set up a Cider and Calvados distillery. In 2007, Spirit France acquired them but Maison Boulard is still run by Vincent Boulard, the 5th-generation of the Boulard family.

Boulard X.O. Calvados Pays d'Auge is the fantastic result of blending together several Calvados varieties from the Pays d'Auge. The Spirits were aged between 8 and 40 years. The final Spirit greets you with rich and fruity aromas that develop into vanilla, wood, and ripe apple. The palate is very balanced, making it perfect for sipping the Calvados neat or using it as base in your artful cocktail. Up to you.
