This Limoux crémant is a classic expression of a sparkling wine made in the traditional method: méthode traditionelle, where the second fermentation takes place in the bottle, creating the bubbles loved the world over. Interesting and complex nose of lemon blossoms, honey and a light touch of green apple. The palate reflects a well-rounded dry crémant, expressing toast, dried apricots and roasted nuts. Fresh fruit and lime round out the finish.
This crémant pairs wonderfully with fish and seafood, especially lobster and crab. Serve with soft cheeses and caviar pie and risotto with mushroom sauces. Try with popcorn to jazz up movie night!
