Limoux

A.O.P. 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....

Château
de Martinolles

Château de Martinolles - Saint-Hilaire

A.O.P. LimouxBlanquette de Limoux, Crémant de Limoux, Blanquette Méthode Ancestrale At the end of a path which follows the Martinollet brook, twisting and turning through wild scrubland, vines and olive groves sits Chateau Martinolles. It is a place steeped in the extraordinary heritage of this region. “La Perle” The Saint-Hilaire monastery actually used to adjoin the property, and it was there in 1531, that the method for making sparkling wines was discovered. The first bubble came into being. The Cathares, hunted down by the medieval Catholic Church, have left an indelible imprint on the countryside and the spirit of its inhabitants. The lie of the land and the unpredictable climate create the most perfect conditions in which to grow Chardonnay, Mauzac and Pinot Noir. Domaine de Martinolles has been a family-run Estate for three generations and is located in Saint-Hilaire, where the Blanquette de Limoux wines were born. Jean-Claude Mas acquired the Estate in 2011, fascinated by the place, the quality of the wines and eventually, to make his dream come true and have his own sparkling wines! Come and discover this charming property only 15 minutes away from the famous City of Carcassonne, at the end of a road that winds its way across the countryside through vineyards, olive trees and heath. You will be welcomed in our wine-tasting cellar which is listed as a "landmark of good taste" and classified as a special stopover in Cathar estate...
