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.

    Take a sharp knife to a bright, happy pippin apple, carve a smiling face into it, then leave it on the kitchen windowsill for a few days with plenty of sunlight beaming in and watch it morph into a shriveled, disfigured wizard with the the telltale scent of dried apples... the very scent of Mauzac, one of the three signature grapes in this delicious sparkling Cremant de Limoux. Blended with dominant citrus, pear and white flower flavors of Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc, it delivers a scintillating, elegantly dry and delicious bubbly for an astonishing price. No wizardy involved, just great winemaking!

    Always one of the staffs favorite sparkling wines. From Limoux - the region to first make sparkling wines using the traditional method long before Champagne even existed. But, don't let the long tradition sway you. Try it! Opens up to wonderful floral nose. Stone fruit, white flowers and honey. The palate is fresh and creamy with lively acidity. This would go perfect with your first course or the cheese plate after dinner.

    From the southern French region of the Languedoc comes this beautiful example of Cement de Limoux, very characteristic of the variety, with perfume of white flower, citrus, lemon soda and drying mineral tones. The wine offers intensity and precision with focused attention on acidity and freshness. A great party pleaser.

    Perfect celebration wine, but priced as an everyday drinker you just can't wrong with "Eugenie". Showing elegant qualities of a good Champagne, this is a super value sparkler with nice aromas of lemon and toasted bread with bright citrus middle and dry finish. Grab a case!

    Looking for the perfect holiday party companion? Cuvee Eugenie is the one for you! Seriously, nothing says holidays like bubbles, and you don't have to spend a lot to get a lot. This wine packs plenty of green apple and lime peel notes into each refreshing sip. Most importantly, it finishes clean and dry. Why buy one bottle of Champagne when you can have four bottles of Cuvee Eugenie?

    The "Cuvee Eugenie" is my go-to bottle of bubbles for every occasion. Whether you're sitting on the couch or celebrating a birthday or holiday, it is perfect! It's beautifully balanced and the chalky and white flower characteristics make this wine incredibly elegant, and a fantastic value.

    Eugenie is one of the stalwarts of our direct import program. Year in and year out, this over-delivers delicious bubbly goodness for its price. The 2013 is even better than the well-regarded 2012. 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 have a love/hate relationship with this cremant; I LOVE it when it's here and HATE it when it's sold out!!! When you're looking for that fresh, citrus-driven, bright apple and pear laden bottle of bubbles, hands down, this is the best choice!
