History

Located along the route from the walled city of Carcassonne to the Pyrenees, the Limoux region is set in the heart of Cathar country and is home to one of France’s oldest wine areas. The cradle of fine wines and famous specialities, including Crémant de Limoux, this bountiful region is the birthplace of the first ever sparkling wine.

Vinification Details

Crémant de Limoux is made  using the  'traditional method.'  During pressing of the grapes, the first juice is collected to make the prestige or ‘tête de cuvée’. The wines are then blended and a second fermentation in the bottle is produced by adding the ‘tirage’ liqueur. Whilst the wines spend nine months on the lees, the secondary bottle fermentation occurs. After nine months, the neck of the bottle is frozen to expel the trapped sediment. Each bottle then spends another two months in the cellar.

Not very crisp and def not dry so not to my taste - more like a Prosecco IMO / if you prefer sweeter fizz then this might be for you but wont be buying again

Beautifully crisp, clean tasting brut. Smooth on the palate, let’s hope it’s easy on the head because I enjoyed this!
