    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. Range: 90-95

    Busnel Up-Close Apple in Distillery Grounds Winery Image

    Busnel is a world leader in the Calvados category and is made with 20 varieties of apples from the elite Pays d’Auge appellation in Normandy France. The Pays d’Auge is situated between two rivers and has a variety of soils from sandy and silty to clay and chalk. Each soil produces different apple varieties.

    The 20+ apple varieties in Calvados are separated into four categories: bitter/sour apples have rugged tannins and heady aromas; sweet apples are rich in sugars for fermentation; bitter/ sweet apples provide complexity and added sugars; sour/bitter apples’ tartness provide freshness and acidity.

    The secret of Busnel’s exceptional richness is a tradition carefully handed down since 1820.
