France's Oldest Sparkling Wine! Dry, toasty, smooth and clean Saint-Hilaire Limoux Blanc de Blanc Brut truly captivates with an attractive yeasty aroma and luscious creamy texture. The palate is light and crisp with citrus and apple flavors and the body is just hefty enough. Blanquette de Limoux is probably the oldest sparkling wine in the world. We know that in 1531, the Benedictine Monks of the Abbey of Saint-Hilaire were already producing Blanquette de Limoux which certainly makes it France's Oldest Sparkling Wine preceding Champagne by more than a century The Limoux vineyards are located in Languedoc, in Southern France, at the foothills of the Pyrenees Mountains. The grapes are selected from clay-limestone plots that capture both the Oceanic and Mediterranean influences.
About Saint Hilaire More than a century before champagne, the Benedictine Monks of the Abbey of Saint-Hilaire in the Southern foothills of Limoux had created France's Very First Sparkling Wine. Today, over four and a half centuries later, Saint-Hilaire Blanquette de Limoux is made in the very same foothills of Southern France.

This is a really terrific champagne with an excellent price point. The taste is smooth with a lovely effervescent and each vintage year is consistent. Buy this champagne. You won't be sorry.

St. Hilaire Brut
My wife's favorite everyday champagne. Consistent vintage to vintage, St. Hilaire would rival brut champagnes costing $100 or more. The service from Drink Dispatch was impeccable and fast. I will re-order when needed.

Saint Hilaire Brut 2015
Very enjoyable brut!! My favorite. Nicely balanced, smooth. Lemony-floral finish. Always pair it with red caviar (coho salmon, pink salmon or sockeye salmon roe) or cod liver.
