Roger Groult Calvados Pays d'Auge 13yo Jurançon Cask Finish...

Roger Groult Calvados Pays d'Auge 13yo Juran ç on Cask Finish (50.3%): Continuing our " 3 days of Calvados" series. It is day two and today's sample is another cask finish experiment from Roger Groult . This time we have a 13 year old Calvados and the cask used for finishing it is a cask previously held Juran çon wine. First things first,  Juran çon is a late harvest sweet wine produced in south west France. It is made from white grape varieties Gros Manseng, Petit Manseng and Courbu farmed on steep slopes of  Pyrenees . After nine years of initial aging in a used Calvados cask the spirit got moved to an ex- Juran çon cask sourced from Domaine Cauhapé for another 3 1/2 years and bottled in December 2020. Only 264 bottles in total have been made available. Color: Light shade of copper, orange blossom honey color with pretty large teardrops keeping their shapes for quite a while before turning into thick, slow and oily legs. Nose: Beautiful baked apples, pear compote an
