90% Mauzac, 5% Chardonnay and 5% Chenin
Blanquette is predominantly made from the local grape variety Mauzac blended with Chardonnay and Chenin. The grapes are all hand harvested, only the first top quality pressing is used in this blend. The second fermentation takes place slowly in the bottle then the wine is aged for a minimum of 18 months producing a very aromatic wine.
In 1531, the Benedictine monks from the Abbey of Saint-Hilaire were producing a still wine made with Mauzac, the local grape variety, and discovered the 2nd fermentation in bottle and the Blanquette de Limoux, the oldest sparkling wine in the world, was born. Mauzac, the main grape variety of Blanquette is specific to the Limoux area, locally it is known as “Blanquette”, due to a fine white down which forms on its leaves. In the local dialect Langue d’Oc Blanquette means white.
The Limoux Vineyard, has a unique micro-climate, which covers 2000 hectares, its located in the South of France in the Pyrenean foothills 20 km from Carcassonne and its famous medieval castle. Extremely strict terroir based selection; state-of-the-art vinification techniques have made Limoux wines one of the most renowned AOC wines in the world.
