    Winemaker's Notes:

    Blanquette de Limoux is probably the oldest sparkling wine in the world. We know that in 1531, the Benedictine Monks of the Abbey of Saint-Hilaire were already producing Blanquette de Limoux which certainly makes it France's Oldest Sparkling Wine preceding Champagne by more than a century

    The Limoux vineyards are located in Languedoc, in Southern France, at the foothills of the Pyrenees Mountains. The grapes are selected from clay-limestone plots that capture both the Oceanic and Mediterranean influences.

    Dry, toasty, smooth and clean SAINT-HILAIRE truly captivates with an attractive yeasty aroma and luscious creamy texture. The palate is light and crisp with citrus and apple flavors and the body is just hefty enough.

    Really enjoyed Saint Hilaire Limoux Blanc de Blanc. I was in Limoux, France in March and really enjoyed the Champagne from this region. So came home and found some on Wine.com. Ordered some violet syrup and put a little in the champagne, just like it was served to me in Carcassonne, France.
