  Specialties

This 40-ha domaine, in the Robert family for many generations, is tucked away in the hills on the east side of the Aude near the village of Pieusse (well signposted). Their whole range is good, especially their Crémants and an attractive Blanquette Méthode Ancestrale, probably one of the best in this style. A good place to learn about the two ways of making sparkling Limoux, particularly as the Roberts still use mostly traditional rémuage to shake down the settlement. A loud-mouthed donkey might warn of your approach, but it is better to phone ahead.

Blanquette de Limoux is an attractive, delicate blend of Chardonnay, Mauzac and Chenin Blanc, and a terrific buy. Why? Because (unlike other fizzy wines such as Prosecco) it is made using precisely the same painstaking (and expensive) "methode traditionelle" as good Champagne. But, as you can see, it can be had for a fraction of the price. In fact, the vignerons of Limoux lay claim (with some justification) to have invented this process centuries ago, and there is no doubt that sparklers from this region of France, nestling amongst the foothills of the Pyrenees, can be fabulous value for money.

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....
