I absolutely love this. With its bready, brioche, yeasty nose, and delicious lemony, apply, brioche flavours on the palate, and excellent energy and length, you could absolutely think you were drinking Champagne. "Mauzac Limoux splendid and delicious Lovely long finish" - Brian L.
Like Champagne, it's made with two fermentations, and in this case, it's kept 20 months on the lees. It's made with the local grape Mauzac, with a touch of Chenin Blanc. This is the Blanquette de Limoux recipe, as opposed the Cremant de Limoux one, which can be made with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. But I am loving the character of this and not missing the flavour of Chardonnay. In fact, I don't think I could tell. All I know is that it tastes brilliant.
FROM THE PRESS
“I rarely write up sparkling wines for our Wine Club because I am conscious that I want to keep the prices keen and the flavours top-notch and this balancing act is a tricky one in the world of fizz. It is no surprise though that Swig has an exception to this rule. Limoux is southern France’s sparkling home and this bone dry Mauzac/Chenin Blanc blend is a wickedly enticing wine. The nose is perfect and the palate is razor-sharp and, in between, the wild flower-scented, silky fruit is lip-smacking. This is an amazing find.”Matthew Jukes, Money Week
