All about making whisky
After 25 years of maturing, and to celebrate his quarter of a century as Lecompte’s Cellar Master, Richard has produced 1988 carafes of this very special cuvee, which has now reached its aromatic apogee. The 1988 vintage is one that is close to Richard Prével’s heart, giving a Calvados Pays d’Auge which perfectly embodies the prestige and history of Maison Lecompte.
Profile: Beneath the powerful aromas of roasted apples, vanilla and grilled almonds, the 1988 reveals beautiful hints of candied orange, honey and cinnamon.
The story of Maison Lecompte begins in 1923. Alexandre Lecompte, a Normandy wine and spirits merchant, decided to sell his business, with the exception of his stocks of old calvados. And so it was that in the cellars of an old farm in Notre Dame de Courson, a remote, almost secret location in some respects, he devoted himself exclusively to the sale of his calvados. Located close to orchards producing some of the region’s finest apples, this picturesque farm now has almost 800 small oak casks distributed between eight cellars, where the slow alchemy of the ageing of very old calvados can take place undisturbed.
