Grand Cuvée Crémant de Limoux Brut 2016

£21.00

Limoux is the oldest sparkling wine producing region in the world. The monks of the Abbey of Saint-Hilaire in Languedoc discovered the magic of secondary fermentation in 1531 and were creating sparkling wine more than a century before their counterparts in Champagne.

This example is made in exactly the same way as Champagne, but using a blend of Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc and the local grape variety Mauzac. Ageing in the bottle for around 18 months imparts a gentle toastiness, brioche notes, a drizzle of honey and a creamy feel. These richer components are perfectly balanced by the tanginess of grapefruit, green apple and rhubarb, and the pretty freshness of a dew-covered wildflower meadow. Although the perfect choice for weddings, garden parties and big celebration, Maison Antech’s Grand Cuvée Crémant de Limoux Brut 2016 is also equally at home with a weekday dinner of ceviche, smoked salmon linguine, sushi or croquettes; it also excels with a decadent cooked breakfast.

One of the most renowned producers of Crémant, Maison Antech was founded at the beginning of the 20th century when Eugenie Limouzy became one of the first women in Languedoc to manage a vineyard. Now Françoise – the sixth generation of the family – is at the helm of this estate, which constantly produces impeccable wines.
