  Specialities

A French town located in the Aude department (Languedoc-Roussillon region) and just 20km in the south from Carcassonne, Limoux is crossed by the Aude River.

The town is renowned for its sparkling wine (the oldest in the world) called la “Blanquette de Limoux” and for its carnival lasting about 3 months.
With its Mediterranean climate and its “ville fleurie” tag, Limoux is a town where it is pleasant either to live or spend holidays. Limoux’s railway station leads to Carcassonne and Rivesaltes from where you will be able to travel towards many destinations.
Not to mention Limoux’s Carnival; it takes place each year in January and lasts about 3 months. This is the longest carnival in the world. Each week-end, groups of people come and go in the streets of Limoux on a local music and dressed with a traditional costume (usually Pierrot costumes). Limoux Carnival is one of the most famous in the world, after Venice and Rio de Janeiro Carnivals.

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....


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....
