Limoux Wine

Crémant de Limoux Wine

Philippe Collin was born and raised in Champagne country where he learned his wine-making craft. When he decided to go it alone as a vigneron independent in 1980, he looked at viticultural real estate prices in Champagne and the Languedoc (roughly the equivalent of Mayfair and the Old Kent Road respectively in a 'Monopoly' analogy) and promptly 'upped sticks' for Tourreilles, some 5 kilometres south-west of Limoux. Here, he crafts fine fizz from Champenois grape varieties that offer terrific value for money. His white Crémant de Limoux 'Cuvée Sélection' is a bottle-fermented blend of 75% Pinot Noir and 25% Chardonnay. The finished wine has a lively mousse, spring blossom scents and a zesty, citrus-edged palate. A sibling rosé is made from 50% Chardonnay, 25% Chenin Blanc and 25% Pinot Noir. It has a limpid coral pink colour, an attractive 'crushed berry' bouquet, racy red fruit flavours and an elegant, dry finish. Both versions compliment canapés to perfection so are ideal for entertaining on a small or grand scale.
