List of products by brand LECOMPTE
The strong point of the Lecompte winery is certainly the quality of the apples grown in the surrounding verdant lands, wisely exploited.
Lecompte is an intense and intriguing Calvados Pays d’Auge, one of the best French producers.
The Lecompte winery saw the light in 1923 when a liquor merchant decided to devote all his energy to the production of his favorite distillate: Calvados.
Thus was born the Maison Lecompte at the time a small artisan producer of Notre-Dame-de-Courson, in the noble heart of the Pays d'Auge, which although starting with only two 25-hectolitre copper stills, still used today, and of a good number of oak barrels between 200 and 400 liters has managed to establish itself as one of the best high quality distilleries in Normandy.
The barrels used for the aging of Calvados Lecompte are essential for the distillate to absorb the aromas of the wood, the hints of cinnamon, nutmeg and ripe fruit that are an integral part of the bouquet of each product of the cellar.
The strength of the Lecompte winery is certainly the quality of the apples grown in the surrounding verdant lands, wisely exploited by the brilliant Richard Prével, third generation "Maître de Chai", who, with his experience of over a quarter of a century, ensures that each bottle is a small masterpiece, infused with the spirit and quality of the family brand.
