Tasting Notes

The Antech "Emotion" is a little something different: a blend of Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Mauzac and Pinot Noir from AOC Cremant de Limoux in the Languedoc region of southern France. It was a huge hit with our staff beginning with the 2012 vintage; now it is back, to make our evenings and dinner parties sparkle just that much more. Pale pink hue, fine bead, delicate hints of cherry and strawberry with white floral notes. A crisp, elegant sparkler made in the traditional method, spending 15 months in the bottle before disgorgement. At about half the price of a bottle of Champagne, Cuvée Emotion is the perfect choice for your house sparkling wine or to feature at parties. Brilliant served as an aperitif, or with sashimi, Chinese or Thai cuisine.

    Limoux is the original home to sparkling wine, with the first vinified bottles dating back to 1544. With less than 25 producers in the region, Antech stands out as one of its most celebrated wineries. The grapes used in this cuvée are 66% Chardonnay, 20% Chenin Blanc, 10% Mauzac, and 4% Pinot Noir. Aromas of flowers and light red fruits on the nose. On the palate, flavors of white cherries, stone fruits, and strawberries mingle together. The zero dosage is evident, as the palate is clean and crisp. This wine a great choice for parties, or with lighter food fare like fresh seafood and sushi

    I love its delicate color and its aromas of wild strawberries and raspberries. Completely Brut, and it pairs beautifully with salads, sandwiches and by the pool!

    What an outstanding bottle of sparkling rosé, and what a fantastic price point as well. You honestly can't go wrong with this one. The finish is very citrusy, grapefruit being the most prominent flavor. Great for any party!

    At a measly $15 a bottle, this gorgeous blend from Limoux (a region with an older sparkling wine tradition than even Champagne) is more compelling than countless over-priced bottles from the more famous region. The fineness of the bubbles lend a mousy texture and the flavor profile offers crunchy strawberry, orange rind, watermelon, a pretty floral nuance, and terroir-driven minerality that reveals why this unsung region for bubbles is actually one of the best kept secrets of France's wine industry. Perfect with turkey, no matter how you prepare it on Thanksgiving; roasted, fried, or smoked, this will be a refreshing and perfectly-calibrated companion.

    A delightful sparkler that is nothing short of fun. Notes of strawberries and pretty white flowers jump out of the glass. The palate offers a rich but delicate cherry and herbal appeal. This is perfect for a house sparkling wine or for your next party.

    The 2014 Antech “Emotion” Brut Rosé is my own personal workhorse bubbly. I’m a sucker for rosé and this delivers on all fronts. With plenty of cherry and Arkansas black apple flavor, it is more structured and full-bodied. It is easily their best rosé to date.

    With an older history of sparkling wine than in Champagne this delightful bottle of bubbly from Limoux is a perfect house wine. Lovely white floral notes with a hint of tart cherry and watermelon bring a delicate flavor to the crisp acidity of the wine. Light and clean enough for an aperitif, this wine still has enough going on to pair beautifully with everything from fish to spicy noodle dishes. This is one of those wines that many of our customers already know and love because the taste far exceeds the price tag.
