The first sparkling wines were invented by monks at the Saint Hilaire Abbey in 1544, well before Dom Perignon. We nurture over 30 hectares of olive, pine and oak trees alongside the vines in this unspoilt corner of the country, a local hunting reserve which has preserved its unique fauna. The Domaine offers lovely accommodation from which to enjoy this beautiful landscape.
Our vineyards are cultivated sustainably and certified by Terra Vitis. Chardonnay, Pinot noir, Mauzac, Chenin blanc, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Syrah are harvested by hand. The vines are trained using the Guyot simple pruning method. The vines, which are planted at a density of 4200 to 6000 vines per hectare, range from 5 to 45 years old and yield on average 40 hl/ha. The individual plots are mainly north-facing, planted on clay-limestone and sandy clay-limestone at an altitude of 190 to 300 metres.
- Color : Pale and limpid yellow, delicate, nice, dancing and persistant bubbles.
- Nose : Intense and refined, honey and acacia aromas join to subtle crystallized citrus fruits hints.
- Palate : Wonderful harmony, very good balance sugar/acidity. We can taste fruits from smelling in a persistent lenght.
- Food pairing : Served at 6 to 8 °C, this Crémant de Limoux is delicious before lunch and dinner, but will be also great with fishes for a very refined meal
