Blanquette de Limoux

Blanquette de Limoux

£16.00

The wine I served at my wedding. This is from the original home of sparkling wine 'Limoux' in the south of France near the city of Carcassonne, where it is said 'Méthode Traditionnelle' was first discovered by monks as far back as the 1600's.

Country: France
Region: Languedoc
Grape: Mauzac Blanc, Chardonnay

This wine is bottle fermented, ie. the secondary fermentation which creates the bubbles is done in the bottle, just like a Champagne or Cremant. Style wise, this is a brilliant fizz for the warmer weather with its fresh style and flavours of apple and citrus, there is lovely mouse and some nice texture which make this a great aperitif.
