CRÉMANT DE LIMOUX
CRÉMANT DE LIMOUX
Grapes from vines grown on clay-limestone soil are exclusively hand-picked at the optimal ripening. Elaborated according to the traditional method, this Crémant is the fruit of a subtle blend of Chardonnay, Chenin, Pinot Noir & Mauzac. There is a first fermentation in vats under controlled temperature at 16°C to develop aromas. The second fermentation called ‘‘prise de mousse’’ takes place slowly in the bottle. Ageing on laths between 12 and 15 months.
Yellow-gold color with green highlights, the bubbles are fine and long-lasting. The nose is very fresh and lively with a mix of white flowers, white fleshed fruits and citrus aromas. Later, the wine develops subtle grilled and hazelnut notes. The attack is strong with a beautiful smoothness. The wine is powerful, well-balanced with grilled notes in the finish.
To be drunk with an apéritif, with seafood or fresh fish. Serve at 7-8°C.

This process gives the wine fine bubbles and a creamy texture.
