Welcome to Tesco Wine by the case.
We hope you enjoy your visit.
An award-wining sparkler from the Languedoc region in southern France, this is fresh and crisp with crunchy green apple and toasty flavours.
And, rather cleverly, comes with a stopper that can be re-sealed.
Really good party wine as well as ready, willing and able to match seafood or antipasti.
This wine is ideal for drinking now but can be kept for up to 1 year

Of the 2011 vintage, Jamie Goode said: "With its fresh, bright, citrussy flavours, plus hints of tasty brioche and peach, this southern French sparkler is a delightful fizz made mostly from the lesser-known mauzac grape variety."
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.
