Philippe Collin, the son of a Champenois, makes this bottle-fermented sparkling wine from 'Champagne grapes' Pinot Noir & Chardonnay in the Limoux region. The fine mousse and clean finish of this excellent Crémant de Limoux belie its Seventies label and humble price tag.
Very pale, clear and dry white wine with a faint note of elderflower on the nose. Mid-palate, there is wonderfully crisp, citric fruit backed by brine and flint undertones with a clean, fresh finish.
