Lecompte Calvados 5 Ans
0.70 l bottle in case
The distillery is located in the area of the most renowned region, Pays d’Auge. Apple varieties grown in the sandy, limestone soils near the town of Lisieux are expertly assembled by “Maître de Chai” Richard Prével.
Calvados du Pays d’ Auge is produced in a very limited area and involves, obligatorily, double distillation (like Cognac). LECOMPTE 5 ANS d’AGE is produced by blending Calvados Pays d’Auge aged 5-6 years. Maturation begins in small new barrels and continues with aging in large cider barrels or “pommeau.”
A golden-blond Calvados with intense aromas reminiscent of vanilla and baked apple. There is a woody note on the palate fused into a simple, defined taste. A Calvados that stands out for its pleasantness and elegance.
