Françoise Antech-Gazeau joined her father and uncle in 1996 to take up the reins of the Antech Estate. After growing up among vines and cellars, she left her native Limoux for a few years to discover the world, but ultimately chose to return to the winery where this fabulous effervescence is created. For over 10 years, she has successfully taken up the challenges of perpetuating the Antech style by focusing on exacting methods, creation and insuring the future of the House, with the support of Georges and Roger. The acts of making wine, tasting, assembling, sampling, creating, improving, developing, sharing, and persuading add up to an continual commitment, every moment of the day. Sound agricultural methods, a strong dedication to sustainable development, and improving cellar hygiene have been day-to-day practices of the House even before methods or rules were formally imposed by outside authorities. 

From generation to generation, the House of Antech has always given priority to the cultivation of excellence, rigor, authenticity, and quality. Today, with over one million bottles sold in France and abroad, the House of Antech is constantly evolving between innovation and tradition in order to harmonize pleasure and fantasy. Under the emblem of a Cathare chateau, which has become the House’s logo, the Antech family asserts its independence, its identity, and its tireless pursuit of excellence.

  Specialties

We practice an enology that is simple, authentic, and respectful of the environment. Our philosophy is to give the vine all that it needs, but only as much as it needs, and we have advocated “clean” agricultural practices for over 10 years now. All grapes used in the composition of our Cuvées are certified Terra Vitis. We are also signers of the “Charter for the progress of sustainable development,” drawn up by businesses in the agricultural and food industries of Languedoc-Roussillon region. Furthermore, we try to recycle as much waste material as possible, and have implemented a plan of action for reducing our energy consumption. We actively contribute to protecting our planet because we believe that it is everyone’s responsibility to do so. As a final note, our House has committed itself for many years to a truly high quality approach that conforms to ISO and IFS certification standards.

In the early days of September, when the grapes are harvested—only by hand—each basket is individually inspected. The grapes, fully intact, are immediately pressed to avoid any chance of oxidation. During the pressing process, rigorous selection takes place and the Cuvée and the taille (pressing) are separated. The musts are cooled to 7-8 °C (45-47 °F) and then clarified by sedimentation in a single night, after which comes the racking, or separation of the grape juice from the pulp. The juice, or must, is then fermented in stainless steel fermentation vats. We have the best possible facilities to ensure perfect and continuous temperature control. This is an essential condition to obtain a very rich aromatic palette. The primary fermentation takes from 15 to 21 days. The base wines are then ready; their leading sensory qualities are visual clarity, rich and straightforward aroma and a clear-cut taste. The alcohol level is between 10° and 11°, with a total acidity of between 4.6 and 5.5; PH is between 2.9 and 3.1.

Limoux

A.O.C. Limoux

Limoux is best known for its sparkling wine, Blanquette de Limoux. This is reputed to be the oldest sparkling wine in France and dates back to 1531 when Benedictine monks from Saint Hilaire Abbey discovered that the wine they had laid down had fermented and formed bubbles. This was the beginning of Limoux’s bubbly - the Blanquette de Limoux which was the first AOC to be created in the Languedoc area. The process (the locals say) was stolen by Dom Perignon who went on to create ‘champagne‘. however the Limoux sparkling wine is a very high quality champagne substitute and Crémant, which was developed in 1990, has a top class reputation. Now a prestigious event attracting buyers from all over the world, “Toques & Clochers” puts up for auction the most promising barrels of AOC Limoux. A share of the proceeds are then used to finance the renovation of bell towers in surrounding villages. Every year the auction is hosted by one of France’s great chefs popularly referred to as a “Toques”, the traditional white chef’s hat....


Blanquette de Limoux

Blanquette de Limoux,  Crémant de Limoux, Blanquette Méthode Ancestrale

History tells us that Blanquette de Limoux, the world's first sparkling wine, dates as far back as 1531. At the time, the monks of the Benedictine abbey of Saint-Hilaire, near Limoux, were producing a somewhat unusual white wine in their cellars. Inside its glass flask, with a cork top - very rare for wines at this time - it acquired a natural sparkle. This was the forefather of the brut which is tasted today at the world's most prestigious tables. Since they first started cultivating vines, the growers of Limoux have aimed at maintaining the originality of the Blanquette de Limoux growth and developing its quality. The region's surrounding hills protect it from the extremes of the Mediterranean and Atlantic climates, with the area enjoying a microclimate particularly suitable for making quality white wine. The vines classified in the appellation are always planted at the top of southern-facing slopes, giving the best exposure. The soil here is shallow and sparse, full of chalk and stone....
