The Calvados

Calvados Lecompte 5 years old is prized for its refined woodiness which compliments the light, lively apple flavours. Before transferring in mature barrels to help bring out its mellow flavours, this Calvados Pays d'Auge spent several months in small casks of fresh oaks, providing a delicate touch of vanilla.

“A blend of sweetness of the apple with the strength of ginger”



I started in the land of Calvados Lecompte  at the Normandy in Deauville as a commis and then transfer to the capital as a ccommis and bartender at the Hilton Plaza Athénée and Crillon. Since 2007, I am in charge of the bars of the Fouquet’s.

Calvados, especially Calvados Lecompte allows you to (re) discover a French spirits.

Calvados Lecompte 5 years old is perfect to discover the full-bodied flavours of a young Calvados and also the sweet taste of the apple.
