Limoux is the area where sparkling wine originated. In 1531, the monks of Saint Hilaire discovered the first wine with bubbles. Located in the foothills of the Pyrenees, these vineyards benefit from the cool conditions required to make sparkling wines of quality. This exceptional quality had even founded an echo across the Atlantic: The White House. Indeed, Thomas Jefferson, was Limoux’ greatest admirer, and he discretely cultivated his love for France and for Limoux sparkling wine. Actually, wine from Limoux was the only sparkling wine to be found in his personal cellar.
The Chardonnay grape is the key ingredient in this blend, contributing to the Crémant’s well-balanced texture and providing the delicate bubbles. The Chenin contribute to Crémant’s vivacity and in time, reveal its exceptional richness. The Pinot grapes supply the exceptional colour. Gérard Bertrand’s Crémant rosé boasts a beautiful, salmon-pink robe with glimmering reflections. Delicate bubbles and an extraordinary vivacity on the palate, with a rich, indulgent texture. A complex bouquet with long-lasting aromas of red fruit (strawberry and raspberry), backed with hints of toasted bread.
