Saint-Hilaire Cremant De Limoux Brut 2017
France

Winemaker Notes: France’s Oldest Sparkling Wine! Dry, toasty, smooth and clean Saint-Hilaire Limoux Blanc de Blanc Brut truly captivates with an attractive yeasty aroma and luscious creamy texture. The palate is light and crisp with citrus and apple flavors and the body is just hefty enough. We know that in 1531, the Benedictine Monks of the Abbey of Saint-Hilaire were already producing Blanquette de Limoux which certainly makes it France’s Oldest Sparkling Wine preceding Champagne by more than a century. The Limoux vineyards are located in Languedoc, at the foothills of the Pyrenees Mountains. The grapes are selected from clay-limestone plots that capture both the Oceanic and Mediterranean influences. Saint-Hilaire Brut displays aromatic flavors of peach, pear and green apple skins with a wonderful, full, creamy mouthfeel. Think non vintage Champagne for a fraction of the cost.

Saint-Hilaire Cremant De Limoux Brut Rose 2016

France

Winemaker Notes: What is now the Abbey of Saint-Hilaire began as a primitive chapel in the 6th century started by Hilarius, the Bishop of Carcassonne. By 817, the Abbey was under the domain of the Order of Saint Benedict. The Abbey includes a Roman style church for the 12th Century, a Gothic cloister and Fortifications of the 14th Century. It was in the Abbey’s historic cellars where the world’s first sparkling wine was created in 1531. These are all the indications of its influence and importance in the Languedoc region in the South of France. The Mediterranean terroir and climate near the village of Saint-Hilaire, in the area of Limoux, produce full bodied red wines as well as distinctive Chardonnay wines with remarkable character aromatic and complexity.
