Known as ‘blanquette’ for the fine white coating which forms on its lees, the Mauzac of the Blanquette appellation is the traditional grape variety of the Limoux, With a characteristic appley flavour it achieves naturally high acidity - essential for high quality sparkling wine. The méthode traditionnelle is said to have been discovered in Limoux and this is exceptionally good sparkling wine from the (arguably) original home of fizz.
This bone-dry blanquette has a tight and finely textured mousse. It shows great typicity with apple blossoms and honey on the nose with a bright, crisp and delicately nutty palate.
