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.

The best - besides Veuve

For the money this is the BEST "sparkling wine" next to Veuve Clicquot (which is technically a champagne) because of its region. I am hesitant in even writing this review because it is already so hard for me to find. Drink Dispatch offers the best prices and the easiest way to get it - just received three cases for my birthday weekend. Thank you Drink Dispatch for making my life so much easier :) Happy birthday to ME:)
