Lecompte - Calvados MultivintageMagnificent Balance
Lecompte multivintage is a limited release,full-bodied and complex calvados from one of the most authentic and prestigious Calvados houses.
Pays d’Auge Multi-Vintage Calvados is a unique blend of five Maison Lecompte vintages whose proportions, known only by the Cellar Master, offer deep, intense aromas. Multi-Vintage is enhanced by a delightful aromatic complexity provided by the 1987 and 1992 vintages, which give it a delicious flavour.
The coffee notes from the 1987 vintage combine with the “tarte tatin” and spicy aromas of the 1992 vintage offer a real heartiness on the palate that gives way to warm candied fruit flavours on the finish.

«This unusual blend of three different vintages, the respective proportions of which are kept secret, results in magnificent balance, thanks to the aromatic finesse of the apple transformed by the action of wood and of time. The coolness of our cellars at Notre-Dame-de-Courson only helps strengthen its character. » Richard Prével, Cellar Master
