Blanquette de Limoux Brut Esprit du Sud NV
12% alcohol, good value sparkler; main grape is Mauzac (90%) with Chardonnay making up the remaining 10%. Has a noticeable apple-peel tartness.
Racy, marked by its terroir by a typical taste of a plant community, its maturity expresses itself with notes of honey from acacia trees. Well structured in mouth but staying unctuous. The finish is fresh and elegant with notes of mint. Serving Suggestions: Enjoy at 43 - 47 °F as an appetizer or during a meal with grilled fish, or cheese and for dessert with an apple pie

Racy, marked by its terroir by a typical taste of “garrigue”, its maturity expresses itself with notes of honey from acacia trees. Well structured in mouth but staying unctuous. The final is fresh and elegant with menthol notes.
