2018 Antech "Cuvée Eugenie" Brut Crémant de Limoux

SKU #1489593 Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Smells like elderflower-scented cream. Pretty and girlish. It makes me think of the lacy clouds of Queen Anne's Lace growing along the roadsides and hedgerows in May. Ripe white peaches. Touch of shortbread bringing subtle autolytic complexity. Soft but well structured. And there are hidden depths to this wine! Françoise Antech suggested pairing it with a ceviche prawn, avocado and grapefruit salad, which I was a bit dubious about, thinking that the wine would not hold up to the strong, sweet-citrus acidity of the grapefruit, let alone the lemon juice, tobasco and chives. But the pairing brought out a new dimension in the wine, a depth I hadn't noticed before, and it made the simple salad taste vividly bright. Up there with one of the best food and wine pairings I've had! 17/20 points (TC) Inner quote mark (5/2020)

K&L Notes

From Maison Antech, located in the Southern France region of the Languedoc, comes this beautiful example of Crémant de Limoux. Named after the grande dame of the estate, Eugenie Limouzy who took over after the first World War. Composed of 70% Chardonnay, 20% Chenin Blanc and 10% Mauzac, this Crémant is produced along the lines of methode champenoise and spends 12 months on the lees before being disgorged. Dosed to 8g/L it is a wonderfully dry and complex sparkler that continues to defy its humble price point.

From the southern French region of the Languedoc comes this beautiful example of Cement de Limoux, very characteristic of the variety, with perfume of white flower, citrus, lemon soda and drying mineral tones. The wine offers intensity and precision with focused attention on acidity and freshness. A great party pleaser.

Eugenie is one of the stalwarts of our direct import program. Year in and year out, this over-delivers delicious bubbly goodness for its price. The 2018 continues their string of successes. Apples, pears, a hint of ginger and a touch of brioche add to the complexity of what is the cleanest freshest sparkling wine for the price. The perfect aperitif to get you through the holiday season.
