A dry, creamy, full-bodied sparkling wine with a fine yeasty character in the aroma, and toasty green apple and lemon flavors. A blend of Mauzac, Chardonnay and Chenin.
History tells us that Blanquette de Limoux, the world's first sparkling wine, dates as far back as 1531. At the time, the monks of the Benedictine abbey of Saint-Hilaire, near Limoux, were producing a somewhat unusual white wine in their cellars. Inside its glass flask, with a cork top - very rare for wines at this time - it acquired a natural sparkle. This was the forefather of the brut that is tasted today at the world's most prestigious tables.
