Bubbles from AOP Crémant de Limoux - a perfect everyday luxury!
Grapes used: 60% Chardonnay, 20% Chenin Blanc, 10% Pinot Noir, 10% Mauzac
Grapes undergo fermentation in stainless steel vats to create the base wine. After primary fermentation, “Liqueur de Tirage”, a blend of sugar and yeast, is added to the juice a few hours before bottling. A second fermentation then takes place in the bottle, which lasts about 3 weeks. The bottles are then gradually turned upside down in order to gather the lees in the neck of the bottle. After one year of ageing “sur pointe”, the bottles are chilled (to freeze the lees) and opened. The lees are expelled and the “Liqueur de Dosage” is added. The bottle is then sealed and released after twelve months of ageing.
Pale yellow with delicate and persistent bubbles. An intense and refined nose of honey, acacia and crystallized lemon lead way to a harmonious palate of citrus fruits. A great balance of sugar and acidity with a long finish.
