Description
Truly "elegance" in the bottle, this wine shows a golden hue with a foaming mousse and long-lasting and fine bubbles. It displays a delicate citrus nose with yeasty aromas. Medium-bodied with cider-apple character and grapefruit/lemon flavors, this bubbly is very nice as an aperitif or with fish or chicken accompanied by white sauces.

According to legend, Blanquette de Limoux was the world's first sparkling wine, dating as far back as 1531. At the time, the monks of the Benedictine abbey of Saint-Hilaire, near Limoux in the Aude, were producing white wine in rather an unusual fashion - instead of using oak vats the wine was fermented in a glass flask, with a cork top which gave it a natural sparkle. Limoux is exclusively from Mauzac and Chardonnay white grape varieties, results in a dry, creamy-textured, full-bodied wine with fruity aromas, a clean taste and a long full finish.
