Lescure commitment

an authentic terroir

a unique characterProduced uniquely in the Poitou - Charentes region, Lescure butter extracts its flavour from the land. Soils which are packed full of flavour, history and traditions, with a strong yet infintely generous character.

Heir to a deeply-embedded winemaking tradition, this land has, for centuries, been lending the wines great complexity. Behind these rich aromas: the variety of its soils and landscapes, with land and sea, plains, hillsides and countryside with small fields and hedges.
Its geographical location and characteristics made it ideal for rearing dairy cows. It provides an abundance of fodder, which is rich in nutrients and full of flavour, enabling them to produce milk whose quality is unique. Over time, mankind has learnt to make a widely-recognized butter which was awarded the precious PDO label.
This land has always given its character to its products. It can be found every day in Lescure butter.

unrivalled quality

the magnificence of great butterIn 1884, at the château de Claix, Baron Lescure came up with an audacious project: to concentrate all the character of his land into one unique product. He built a dairy, collected the best milk and created exceptional butter. A treasure to which he gave his name.

Lescure butter is the fruit of ancestral expertise. Seemingly simple techniques, which are perfectly mastered. Attention to detail is constant. Years of experience and everlasting passion. A love for the product which burns strongly every day.

It is produced by blending milk from its PDO area and a selection of specific lactic ferments, which guarantee its flavour and smoothness. It is made like a grand cru, with patience and respect. Sixteen hours of biological maturing are observed in order for the cream to develop its flavours. Churning in a very precise manner is then undertaken. After which it is sniffed, tasted, worked and even tested with croissants, under the watchful eye of the Butter Master… Nothing is left to chance, not even its texture on the palate. It undergoes regular organoleptic tests imposed by the Charentes-Poitou PDO specifications. Only when it is deemed to be perfect will it be wrapped, just before being delivered.
Its greatness results from it being looked after every step of the way.
