The Limoux area has a history of sparkling wine production that pre-dates the champagne.The story is that the first sparkling wine was made at Saint-Hilare near Limoux as long ago as 1531. The Cremant de Limoux appellation was created in 1990 for sparkling wines made mainly of chardonnay,although pinot noir,chenin blanc and mauzac may be added to a blend. There are also two earler appellations for sparkling wines in the area,Blancquette Methode Ancestrale and Blancquette de Limoux which must be 100% and 90% mauzac respectively

    Binny's 1/31/2018. It's always the mood that makes it seem to taste a little better. Our 43rd wedding anniversary, (2/15/2018), was just such an occasion. Lovely, light, colorful and dry. Perfect sparkler to sip as we played "remember when" before the fireplace. Read More

This sparkling wine is quite nice for the money, very dry, medium small bubbles, with a clean aftertaste. However, there are several other brands in this price range that ... Read More
