As soon as you pour out a generous flute of this bubbly you’ll notice the fine bubbles and vibrant aromas of ripe berries, lemon zest and ripe apples. The first sip showcases a rich mousse and uplifting lemon and white peach flavours punctuated with hints of pastries and toast. The finish is long and clean with a bright acidity and subtle hint of sweetness from the 10 grams of residual sugar per litre. Although not as well known as their famous cousins in Champagne, the sparkling wines of the Limoux region in Languedoc are made using the same traditional method and offer incredible value for money. The Antech Limoux Reserve Brut is an elegant cuvee of Mauzac, Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc which undergoes secondary fermentation inside the bottle. The wine is then aged on the lees in the cellar for 18 months to produce a refined, mature sparkling wine with plenty of personality.
This graceful vintage Blanquette de Limoux is the perfect representation of the Antech family’s commitment to crafting delicious sparkling wines using the traditional method. The family have been making bubbly for six generations and today rely on the expertise of Francoise Antech who is widely regarded as one of France’s top female winemakers.Origin: Limoux, France
