Clara Vie · Blanquette de Limoux Brut Nature
Blend: 90% Mauzac, 5% Chenin Blanc, 5% Chardonnay
Aging: 24 months in stainless steel
Pouring a crystalline yellow with golden hues, the intense nose offers delicate scents of hawthorn and crisp green apple to offset the nutty, pastry-like richness imparted by the extended tirage. No dosage highlights the brisk freshness that sweeps over the palate, carrying with it citrus fruits, tart apple, mirabelle plum, and golden flowers that come in waves as the wine meanders toward a harmonious finish. To be enjoyed as an aperitif or throughout any meal you can throw at it. Serve at 44-45° Fahrenheit. Certified Terra Vitis.
A custom cuvee between JP Bourgeois and Francoise Antech. Maison Antech-Limoux holds a six-generation family tradition of winemaking. Since the late 19th century, the family has had a vested interest in the winemaking traditions of the region, and each generation has added their own touch. Françoise, a member of the sixth generation, inherited her elders’ strong character. A guardian of the heritage, she is also a fervent advocate of social and cultural action in her region. For over five centuries, the family has tamed this magical terroir to make fine sparkling wines. The secret of their character lies in the wise combination of Limoux’s three terroirs, which form the backbone of their cuvées: freshness from the Pyrenees, minerality from the ocean and roundness from the Mediterranean. In the family vineyard, they try out new methods on their old vinestocks on the appellation’s highest land — stony, south-facing hillsides nearly 400m above sea level opposite the Pyrenees.
