Dupont Fine Reserve Calvados, Pays D' Auge has aged 2 years in oak barrels, with 50% being new oak. The apples are mixed, crushed and pressed. The apple juice is fermented right out to give cider to be distilled. Double distillation is carried out 6 months after the fermentation has taken place. The first distillation gives the "petite eau" at 30% by volume and it is the second distillation, that of the "petite eau" which gives the Calvados its refined flavor.
