Excellent predecessor to Champagne
I discovered Blanquette de Limoux back in 1967 and have always featured the wine on my wine lists.. It is a high quality wine and much enjoyed by everyone who drinks it.
Sophistication (and Club Points Too!)
A delightful wine, well presented and sure to delight eager Wino's, novice or hardcore enthusiasts alike. The Bubbles delight and grace the glass, as served and create an almost "Feel Good Factor". This Wine works! It doesnt get better than this and after the 3rd Bottle you will quickly realise that this offering from Tesco was excellent value. Its just a great shame that, at 75cl, I can only manage to squeeze out 3 glasses. Never-mind; open another bottle or order another case to keep the momentum going. There's really no need to look further than this one!
sophisticated and refreshing
Originally I bought Blanquette de Limoux out of nostalgia, as I used to live not far from Limoux, but it is worth buying for its qualities, and I think a good Blanquette outclasses a poor Champagne every time. Made by the méthode champenoise, predominantly from the Mauzac ("blanquette") grape, with a small amount of Chardonnay and Chenin blanc, it is crisp, dry, fruity and refreshing - far more so that pure Chardonnay fizzes in my opinion, which can be a little flabby if not well made. Drink it as celebration or apéritif, but don't waste it on parties where people are just going to glug. Don't waste it, as it is delicious.
This wine is great for all occasions.
I have bought this wine lots of times and it never disappoints.It's great on it's own or with food. Always a hit at parties.
Amazingly tasty,quoffable Champagne at an affordable price. Well done Tesco
Blanquette de Limoux
A fine wine of good value it has been my favourite for a number of years and I find the wine has excellent consistancy
This Wine is Great
Bought this wine with a view to give as present for my family opened one of the bottles to see if the taste was as good as the bottle said that was it the taste was absolutely gorgeous and the persons that got the bottles were also interested in buying it so that I have told them that they can order it for themselves at Tesco wine direct.
Love the bottle and the taste of this great bubbly! Lovely with fish or seafood
Excellent alternative to Champagne
The monks knew what they were doing and this product in my opinion, rivals most champagnes. Crystal clear flavours of toasted brioche, bright, light and a pleasure to drink at any time. Value for money ever though tesco increased the price after the brilliant review on Saturday Kitchen!
Very well received.
I am not a wine drinker but my sister is. She loves champagne, prosecco and cava. I took her a bottle of this this morning as part of a birthday gift. I have just received a text from her saying how very very good this wine is. Her friend is sharing the bottle and completely agrees. I think they will be buying this in future.
