LAURANS CRÉMANT de LIMOUX ‘LES GRAIMENOUS’ 2017

LAURANS CRÉMANT de LIMOUX ‘LES GRAIMENOUS’ 2017

Blanquette de Limoux was created in 1531  in the cellars of the Benedictine Saint  Hilaire Abbey when a monk discovered that  the wine that he had bottled and carefully  corked formed bubbles, after a second  fermentation. The first sparkling wine in the  world had just been invented in this  splendid abbey.

Description

An exceptional wine. This vintage won the Decanter World Wine Awards 2019.

An exceptional wine – a tête de cuvee – upon which the reputation  of the Domaine J. Laurens is built. The first impressions of this Crémant are of an intense and complex nose of citrus and dried  fruits, honey with a touch of green apple. On the palate, we find all  the expression of a well-rounded wine, of toast with an after taste  of fresh fruits and lime. 60% Chardonnay,30% Chenin Blanc, 5% Mauzac Blanc, 5% Pinot Noir.

Food recommendations. Ideal as an aperitif with ‘’tapas’’ for example or with oysters and other seafood, white meats as well as some cheeses.
