Musée de l'Imprimerie de Limoux - Limoux

The Limoux Printing Museum aims to recall the history of printing, which is ultimately the history of mankind. He will introduce you to a workshop on typography (typesetting, pressing ...), as it was in the time of Gutenberg. The rapid technological evolution of the last decades has of course brought with it new reproduction techniques, but the typographic rules of the 15th century are still taught to students of vocational training. Educational workshops: writing, drawing, engravings, binding, caricature, calligraphy, lithographic, typographic, offset printing, 3D printer...

Jean-Claude Laffont's passion began when he was apprenticed to the Tinéna printing works in Quillan and Privat in Toulouse. After attending the professional book courses in Toulouse and successfully completing the CAP and the end of his apprenticeship as a typographer, he worked in Carcassonne, Clairvivre (Dordogne) and finished his professional career in the departmental newspaper "Center Presse" in Rodez...
  The idea of preserving cultural heritage and transferring the know-how of his fine profession had sprouted in his head, but it wasn't until 1996 that it took shape. His various responsibilities, including that of national administrator of the Social Fund of the supplementary pension fund for printing works, responsible for the regions of Poitou-Charente, Limousin, Auvergne, Midi-Pyrénées (Aveyron-Tarn) and Languedoc-Roussillon (Lozère), made him able to meet many printers and have an important collection thanks to their donations.

He gathered around him active and retired printers, to which qualified people were added who in April 1998 founded the "Association of the Museum of Graphic Arts and Communication" with the aim of carrying out activities. Cultural activities, to create a printing company. Museum and to offer educational manual workshops.

After moving the Bozouls collections to Capdenac-Gare, Pont-Viel and Bel-Air in Rodez, no suitable solution was found, the Association des Amis du Musée de l'Imprimerie, des Arts Graphique et de la Communication was hosted by Jean-Paul Dupré, Deputy Mayor of the City of Limoux, who was interested in the project and founded the Printing Museum...

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.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 AOP 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 AOP 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....
