A great value alternative to Champagne, this fantastic fizz was an instant hit upon its release a quarter of a century ago. It is made in Limoux using Champagne’s méthode traditionnelle for fine bubbles, zippy lemon flavours and an elegant finish.
"Fantastic. A great alternative to more expensive Champagnes. Would definitely recommend"
Online Review For the 2016 vintage
We have offered this exemplary wine for over two decades and the multitude of awards over the years – and the 5-Star reviews – speak volumes. It is our bestselling sparkler by a mile. Roche Lacour winemaker Viviane Gianesini works her magic beneath the cool hills of Limoux. Here, the monks of Saint Hilaire are said to have mastered sparkling wine methods in 1531, centuries ahead of Dom Pérignon. Bottles back then were fragile and didn’t travel, so their success remained a secret. The cuvée is rich in Chardonnay and Pinot Noir – like Champagne – and nearly half the wine is oak fermented – just like Krug! It’s an expensive technique (so rarely practised) yet important for depth and complexity. Enjoy on its own or with deserving canapés.
