Lecompte Calvados 12 Ans
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 12 ANS d’AGE is produced by blending 12- and 13-year-old Pays d’Auge Calvados.
Golden copper color with hints of very ripe apples and vanilla with hints of wood, spices, cinnamon and nutmeg. The palate is fruity with smoky aromas, delicate tannins and spicy notes blended with those of caramel apple.
