Tasting Notes

In the glass, this Crémant is brilliant with a lively fizz. Bright and citrusy, with just a hint of yeasty savouriness overlaying the lovely sweet fruit.

This Chardonnay based Cremant de Limoux (as opposed to a Mauzac dominated Blanquette de Limoux) is made using the 'm�thode traditionnelle'. First fermentation is in stainless steel vats to control the temperature with the secondary fermentation in bottle. The wine is then allowed to rest on lees for a minimum of twelve months before disgorgement, with a further fifteen months in bottle before release.

JLaurens produce both Mauzac-dominated Blanquette de Limoux and Chardonnay-based Cr�mant de Limoux from their 30ha of organically-farmed vineyards slightly south-west of Carcassone. The domaine was established by a champenois�in the 80s and is today owned by Jacques Calvel, who surrounded by an expert local team, has built the domaine's current reputation for outstanding sparkling wines.
