Limoux is the region that gave birth to sparkling wine. In 1531, the monks of Saint Hilaire discovered the first sparkling wine there. Situated in the foothills of the Pyrenees, these vineyards benefit from the cool climate necessary for the production of quality sparkling wines. This exceptional quality had even found an echo on the other side of the Atlantic: at the Maison Blanche. Indeed, Thomas Jefferson, was the greatest admirer of Limoux and discreetly cultivated his love for France and for the Crémant de Limoux. In fact, Limoux wine was the only sparkling wine he kept in his personal cellar.

Food and wine pairing and service advice

Perfect as an aperitif, served at 10°C, it also goes very well with goat's cheese (Cabécou, Pélardon, Rocamadour...) and sweet desserts.

Vinification

The grapes are hand-picked and the harvest is early in order to keep a good acidity. As soon as it arrives in the cellar, the fruit is immediately pressed using a pneumatic press. The must is transferred to the vats for alcoholic fermentation, using the same process as for still wines. The wine is then transferred to sealed bottles for the second fermentation, using the champagne method. Finally, we disgorge the bottles and carry out the traditional dosage, which is very precise, in order to preserve all the freshness and balance of the wine.
