Lecompte - 18 Year OldSuperior Elegance
Lecompte 18 year old is a superior, elegant and complex calvados from one of the most authentic and prestigious Calvados houses.
After a long maturing period in small barrels, the Cellar Master guides this Calvados Pays d’Auge to full maturity with a final phase spent in oak vats, ensuring that the aromas are rich and perfectly rounded.
The subtle bouquet includes prominent honey notes, underpinned by a gentle woodiness and delicate, delicious apple tart flavours. This is a Calvados of superior elegance and texture, with concentrated apple flavours which truly are as smooth as velvet.
The word from the Cellar Master: ‘One of our most refined Calvados, and one of the best-loved.’
The cellar master has lovingly nurtured this 18 years old Calvados to peak maturity with a series of transfers between new and reddened (old) barrels. He has succeeded in imbuing his creation with the perfect sense of balance which is so typical of our fine Calvados.
The smooth bouquet has abundant honey aromas, supported by a light woodiness and counterbalanced by distinct notes of sweet apple compote.
Serve ‘straight up’ in a large, open glass.
