Description

Calvados Pays d'Auge, this unique assemblage reveals layers of flavor, while fresh and lively.

Lecompte Calvados Originel leads with refined and arrant fragrances of tree ripe yellow apples, firm green pears, peach, and white grapes baking together in honey and spice. A cushy front palate displays the medium body with flavors of apples spiced with fennel, baked in crisp filo dough basted with honey-butter and dusted with cinnamon. The finish shows a balance of fruit that reveals a clear oak influence of caramel and butterscotch, and a clean, dry copious amount of minerals that lag, and slowly fade to a warming remnant of lingering apple. This is a delightful Calvados that would be brilliant as an aperitif, or again, as as a 'trou Normand' and even in an adult beverage.
