This estate produces just one Calvados for sale, a blend of a minimum of 20 years of age. It has picked up awards at the Salon de l’Agriculture in Paris on several occasions. Listed in numerous Michelin-starred restaurants in France.
A rare and authentic Calvados with an enticing character.
Located in the heart of the Risle valley in the Eure, Domaine de la Mérité is also a stud farm breeding English thoroughbred racing horses and trotters. Set amid pastures, several high stem apple orchards supply the yearly production for Domaine de la Mérité’s Calvados.
Texel sheep graze in the orchards throughout the year. Several apple varieties are harvested mainly by hand in order to retain only the very best to create a high-quality cider. This cider is then distilled in a mobile still, set up on the estate for one week each year.
Ageing is carried out in oak barrels in our cellars, over time producing an old Calvados from a blend of different years but all over 20 years old.
The 20-year-old Domaine de la Mérité Calvados is sold in 35, 75, 150 and 300 cl bottles
It is available in many wine stores, Michelin-starred restaurants and luxury hotels.
It can be bought on the estate (if the owner happens to be around!)
