COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The ’Pommeau’ is a mix between apple moût and Calvados. E.Dupont POME 1998 is a very special blend of E. Dupont’s unfermented apple juice and his one year old Calvados . This blend was filled into 5 year old empty calvados casks in 1998 the tannins of which were still at work. It has been aging in these wooden barrels ever since. As the name "Pommeau" is legally reserved for such blends not exceeding 30 months of aging in those wooden casks the term "POME" was created to celebrate this very special 10 year old blend of apple juice and calvados.

Sampled from bottle @ my parents place. They brought a bottle from France when they werethere on hholiday last summer. Clear amber color, no head. Aroma has apple, sweetness, sugar. Taste apple, sugar, alcohol, a bit dry, maybe a hint of vanilla and cinnamon. Warming alcohol finish, a bit dry.

Deep amber pour with no head. Nose is rich wood, light vanilla, alcohol, faintly tart, and sticky. Flat, heavy wood, sticky alcohol, sweet apple, caramel, toffee, and dough. Quite tasty, will be a sipper for the day.

Lukaduke (1742) - Portland, Maine, USA - NOV 13, 2013
Pours a rich copper color with great clarity. The nose is a mixture of sweet apples, burnt sugar, warm booze and a touch of spice. The palate is warm and boozy with a nice apple pie sweetness with added complexity of butterscotch, tannic apple peel and a long apple finish. Warms you from the belly up !
