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.

Saint Hilaire

This is a delightful wine. Well known in France but no so much here which is probably what makes it so affordable. Best kept secret.

St. Hillaire

Love this wine. Love Drink Dispatch. My only complaint is that I can only purchase one case at a time! Dollar for Dollar, still the best sparkling wine one can drink.
