Limoux Wine

Crémant de Limoux Wine

Philippe Collin is a savvy Champenois who astutely realised that he would get a lot more fizz for his francs in the Languedoc than he would near home, so decamped to an elevated site near Toureilles above the town of Limoux in 1980. Perhaps unsurprisingly, he favoured Pinot Noir and Chardonnay over more traditional Mauzac and set about the production of fine, sparkling Crémant de Limoux with alacrity.

His white 'Cuvée Sélection' is made from a blend of 75% Pinot Noir and 25% Chardonnay that is aged for about three years before being disgorged and corked under pressure. The finished wine has a lively mousse, uplifting 'spring blossom' bouquet and a zesty, citrus-edged palate with a long, clean finish. It drinks very well as an 'all purpose' aperitif and makes a fine partner to canapés.

Phillipe also fashions a pretty, coral-pink Crémant rosé from a blend of 50% Chardonnay, 25% Chenin Blanc and 25% Pinot Noir. With red berry aromas and raspberry and redcurrant flavours offset by a fresh acidity and effervescence, it is ideal for outdoor imbibing in the more clement months though indoor consumption is not to be sneezed at.
