Calvados Père Magloire, Calvados Boulard and Calvados Lecompte were presented at a prestige spirits tasting at the Grand Hôtel de Bordeaux in front of a panel of around fifty sommeliers, who tasted a range of 120 cuvées presented by 39 producers. Philippe Faure-Brac, holder of the title Best Sommelier in the World, graced this prestige tasting with his presence.
The Calvados Père Magloire and Calvados Lecompte cellar masters, as well as Mr. Boulard, travelled to Bordeaux for the occasion.
The tasting notes given by the sommelier elite – ‘rich and delicate, a beautiful blend’, ‘displaying finesse, very pleasant’, ‘wonderfully complex’, ‘a beautiful cuvée’ – confirm the excellence of these Calvados examples and their rightful place in the world of elite spirits.
