Cremant de Limoux is an AOC defined in 1990 as a more Champagne-like alternative to Blanquette de Limoux and is made with Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, and Mauzac. Sometimes, as in this bottle, Pinot Noir is added.
Extremely pale color, many tiny vigorous bubbles.
Smell of pear juice with a trace of peach.
Dry pear and apple flavors, fruity, lemony finish.
Very good light-to-medium-bodied bottle for $16.99.
