Limoux, a western Languedoc appellation set in the cooling shadows of the Pyrenees, has been a great source for traditional method sparkling wines since the 16th century. Admirably affordable, it is the perfect bubbly alternative to pricier Champagne, and whether planning a weekend get-together, splashy party or elaborate wedding, adding this elegant, polished sparkler to your table will prove a smart decision. Cremant de Limoux was created in 1990 as a suave, lissome alternative to the more rustic sparkling wines from the region, and has been a fantastic international favorite since its debut.
The balanced acidity levels reflect the cool Atlantic breezes and mesh smoothly with apple peel, honeydew and citrus fruit flavors.
