Abbaye de Saint-Polycarpe - Saint-Polycarpe

Saint Polycarp (Saint Policarpi in Occitan), has 165 inhabitants (census 2009), which are called Saint-Polycarpiens. The village of Saint-Polycarpe is located on the Meridian Green, the Paris Meridian. The Saint-Polycarpe brook crosses the tributary of the Aude 7 km from Limoux, 8 km from Saint-Hilaire, 24 km from Carcassonne, 31 km from Mouthoumet and 42 km from Lagrasse.
Abbaye de Saint-Polycarpe - Saint-Polycarpe
The name of Saint Polycarp given to the abbey will also become the name of the village, the name of the primitive village being Rivograndi: Rieugrand. This patronage of Saint Polycarp suggests that the abbey held relics of the saint of Asia Minor, where he was born in the late 1st century AD. Bishop of Smyrna, today Izmir in Turkey, this church father was martyred in 155 under Marcus Aurelius, accused of atheism because he refuses to sacrifice to the gods officials, among which is the emperor. Condemned to the stake but miraculously spared by the flames, he then stabbed.
  The Abbey of Saint-Polycarpe is one of the oldest monastery's in the country and region of Rhedez. Its creation is nevertheless after that of the the founding of the famous Abbey of Alet, which is nearby. A Spanish nobleman named Attala left his homeland - which had been invaded by the Saracens (*), and then settled in the region called Rhedesium and retired to a small monastery, almost a simple hermitage, situated on the banks of the stream called Rieugrand and which bore the name of the monastery of St. Polycarp. Attala became prior of the convent and the place, and thanks to its wealth, became largely endowed. Charlemagne granted the abbot Attala certain privileges which were confirmed and expanded by his successors, Charles the Bald and Louis the Debonair. Nevertheless it is, if we can say so, a courtesy we give the convent of Saint-Polycarpe the name of an abbey. It was originally a simple priory and despite repeated competitions from the abbots of Lagrasse, St Polycarpe always remained under the control of the Abbey of Alet. Indeed, in a council held at Toulouse, in 1119, under the presidency of Pope Calixtus II, the only priests who had the right to attend the meeting, in conjunction with the bishops of the region, were those of Lagrasse, Aniane and Alet. Therefore, the Sueperiors of the other monasteries of the region were merely only trustees or priors. It was precisely during this council that it was confirmed in favour of the Abbey of Alet, possession of the monasteries of St. Polycarp and Saint-Paul-de-Fenouillet.

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....
