Cremant de Limoux is produced 25 km south of Carcassonne, from some of the highest vineyards (250 to 500 metres abovesea-level) in the Haute Vallee de l’Aude, and indeed the Languedoc. The appellation is framed by the Chalabrais plateaux to the west and the Lacamp plateaux to the east. Stretching out towards the Pyrenees, the appellation is remarkably consistent acrossits 41 communes.
The natural protection surrounding three sides of the appellation limits coastal influences and creates an oceanic climate with semi-continental tendancies, including frequent rainfall and a broad temperature range.
|Wine maker notes
|The still wine is barrel fermented prior to the second fermenation process taken place in the bottle (methode tradionelle or known as méthode champenoise in the Champagne Region).
Chenin Blanc and Chardonnay dominate the blend and bring out an elegant fruity style with rich aromas. The Chardonnay gives the finesse for the bubbles, while the Chenin its acidity. The Pinot Noir provides that lovely soft rosé hew.
|From the discovery of the Tautavel man to the Roman hegemony in Narbonne, via the Visigoth occupation and the Cathar heresy, Languedoc-Roussillon’s past is steeped in rich history. At the beginning of the 20th Century, a phylloxera epidemic, coupled with overproduction and widespread fraud, wrought havoc for winegrowers, who subsequently decided to revolt. Since the 1950s the wines of the Languedoc have become increasingly refined, and the best estates now produce wines of truly exceptional quality. Gerard Bertrand is determined to drive this progress even further, through continued innovation and by creating internationally-renowned appellations and wines.
