“Fruit, vanilla, and woody hints.”
This Calvados Pays d’Auge spends several months in a small cask of fresh oak and is then transferred into mature barrels, bringing out the more subtle flavours of the wine. You’ll find the taste to be fruity, but also with subtle hint of woodiness. Lecompte’s 5 Year Old Calvados is light and fruity. The combination of apple and vanilla notes allows it to work well in cocktails.
Founded nearly 100 years ago, LeCompte Calvados is an apple brandy from the Normandy region in France. The Lecompte distillery is based in the center of the Pays d‘Auge in the Notre Dame de Courson village. Centuries-old apple orchards produce an array of apple varieties from the region.
