Saint-Hilaire, Blanquette De Limoux Blanc De Blanc
Delicious and fairly dry with a lighter body and leaning heavily into citrus, apple and pear profiles, this Limoux sparkling wine carries yeasty aromas and creamy textures all the way through the refined finish. Think non-vintage Champagne for a fraction of the cost.
Grapes: Mauzac, Chenin, Chardonnay
Region: Blanquette De Limoux, France
Meet The Maker
By 1794 Blanquette de Limoux was well known and appreciated throughout France. About that time, it was discovered by a famous American, Thomas Jefferson.
Among his other talents, the third American President was an expert on French Wines and Blanquette de Limoux, one of his favorites, was an integral part of his wine cellar. In fact, President Jefferson was probably the first person to bring the wine to America.
Today, Blanquette de Limoux has won the acclaim of knowledgeable wine enthusiasts throughout the world.
It is sold in the United States under the name SAINT-HILAIRE in honor of the monks who first created the wine more than 475 years ago. One taste of SAINT-HILAIRE quickly reveals why France’s Oldest Sparkling Wine is also its' best.
