Tasting Notes

From La Maison Antech, located in the Southern France region of the Languedoc, comes this beautiful example of Cremant de Limoux. Named after the grande dame of the estate, Eugenie Limouzy, this Cremant is composed of 50% Chardonnay, 40% Chenin Blanc and 10% Mauzac. It is produced along the lines of methode champenoise and spends 12 months on the lees before being disgorged. This balanced and elegant sparkling wine reveals subtle hints of citrus fruits, toast and honey. At less than half the price of a bottle of Champagne, the Cuvée Eugenie is the perfect choice for your house sparkling wine or to feature at parties where quality and good taste matter. 12% abv.

    Eugenie is one of the stalwarts of our direct import program. Year in year out, this over delivers delicious bubbly goodness for its price. The 2012 is no exception and may be one of the best to date. Apples, pears, a hint of ginger and a touch of brioche add to the complexity of what is the cleanest freshest sparkling wine for the price.

    I don't think there's a better value for bubbles in our inventory! This wine brings clean, citrus notes on the front end with enough yeasty complexity for champagne fans on the finish. Bring a bottle to brunch soon and all your friends will assume you spent big bucks.

    Pretty lemon-lime-tangerine notes meet up with yeasty, fresh baked bread on the nose of the Eugenie. The initial vigor of the effervescence is pleasantly belied by the fineness of the mousse here, before the wine settles down to clean, light toasty flavors and a suggestion of something like sweet-tarts. Still one of the best deals going in inexpensive bubbly, this Cremant can easily go toe-to-toe with any sparkling wine in this price range, from any location, and win.

    Always one of our best deals in bubbles. On the lighter side, with citrus and apple flavors, a touch of yeasty breadiness and clean finish. Something to have in your fridge at all times.

    Most definitely one of the best deals in bubbles outside of Champagne. With an intriguing balance between richness and delicacy, this is lemony and honeyed but perfectly Brut. Pair it with any creamy fish dishes, blinis, fondue, banana-based desserts, carrot cake, or just as an aperitif watching the sun setting over the Pacific!

    'Tis the holidays, and that means one thing: SPARKLING WINE! Straight from the Limoux (the ORIGINAL producers of sparkling wine in France - yes, they beat Champagne) comes this gorgeous blend of Chardonnay, Meunier, and Mauzak. Vibrant apple and pear notes sit perfectly amongst a tight concentration of bubbles with a long finish. An awesome choice to toast the season of giving. HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
