  • THE COAST 112

In 1944, on June 6 and during the long summer that followed, men from all over the world came to fight in Normandy to defeat Nazism and restore freedom. Chronologically, in the operation of June 6, 1944, we can distinguish 3 phases: the landing by air (which affects the beaches of Utah to the west and Sword to the east), the aerial and naval bombardments on the Wall of the Atlantic and disembarkation by sea on the 5 beaches (Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno and Sword) and Pointe du Hoc.

What to drink in Normandy?

Cider, pommeau, calvados, perry and Bénédictine.

Cider: Normandy now dominates French production. The soils, the climate, and the diversity of apple trees, high and low stems, make it possible to produce fruits of exceptional quality. For cider, producers mainly use bitter or bittersweet apples. They are harvested from mid-September. After crushing and passing through the vat, by pressing, a first juice is extracted. Then racking eliminates the last impurities. Fermentation begins. Natural yeasts come into action. The sugar then transforms into alcohol. The magic happens! After bottling, fermentation continues in the bottle.

Calvados: Its production has been documented since at least 1553. The Lord of Gouberville, a gentleman living in Cotentin, wrote in his journal “the distillation of cider with a view to obtaining eau-de -life “. Today, three AOCs supervise and protect production: “Calvados”, “Calvados Pays d’Auge”, “Calvados Domfrontais”. But how do they differ? “Calvados” is the result of distillation in a column still.
For the AOC “pays d’Auge”, double distillation (nearly 18 to 20 hours in a pot still) is required. The geographical area is very limited.
The “Domfrontais” stands out due to the characteristics of the soil (schist and granite from the Armorican massif), the introduction of a minimum of 30% perry and simple distillation. It represents 1% of the total calvados production.

Le Pommeau: the clever blend of cider and calvados

Le Poiré: In the Domfrontais region, more than 100,000 pear trees produce more than 25,000 tonnes of pears per year. The AOC covers a territory of 40 communes in three departments, Manche (Normandy), Mayenne and Orne (Normandy). The “white plant”, a small juicy and tangy pear, is the most commonly used. As with cider, fermentation is slow (between 3 and 4 months), without adding gas. The excitement is natural! Its fine bubbles, its white gold, silvery color, going up to intense gold, its roundness, which contrasts with its tone, will certainly surprise your guests! Our advice: enjoy it in a flute and chilled (10°).

La Bénédictine: Created in 1510 by a Benedictine monk, the recipe apparently disappeared before being rediscovered by a wine merchant, Alexander the Great! Mastering the basics of marketing before his time, he made it one of the best-known liqueurs in the world.
