The wine has a pale straw color with hints of greenreflects at the edge of the glass. The bubbles are tiny and very elegant. Its aromas are very fruity with a hint of biscuits, hazelnuts and flowers. This wine is elegantly balanced, complex and well structured with a long and crisp mineral finish.

The fermentation kicks off in the stainless steel vats in the same way we would vinify the still white wines. We will follow the requirements of the méthode champenoise and then disgorge with a liqueur d’expédition. This 70% Chardonnay Crémant de Limoux brings rich and elegant fruity aromas.
Wine maker notes
The grapes are harvested early and by hand, in order to retain a good level of acidity. Upon arrival at the winery, the fruit is immediately pressed in a pneumatic pressing machine. The must is transferred to the vats for alcoholic fermentation, using the same process as that used for still wines. The wine is then transferred to sealed bottles for fermentation, in accordance with the champagne method. To finish, we disgorge the bottles and perform the traditional dosage.

Producer
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.
