Name 3 and state why you like them!

  • I had the pleasure of visiting Normandy this past October.  Loved the spiced apples and carmel notes of Pierre Huet from the Pays d'Auge, and of course a few of the larger houses like Christian Drouhin with it's apple butter characteristics and Roger Groult's 8 year with it's cinnamon and vanilla spice and round rich mouthfeel. Both very consisitent in their eloquent sipper styles.  My favorite flavor profiles are a combination of oak spices and butterscotch notes with hint of the alcohol on the finish.
