Reviews and Ratings

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Wonderful bone dry bubbly. Declared 12.5% ABV. Brilliant pale straw. A self proclaimed oldest Brut in the world is declared on the label. 18 months on lees has imparted this beautiful crisp cremant with Apple brioche notes and zesty citrus. Tasted Feb 2017. Rated 91/100. BespokeTastings.ca
Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Pale gold, with aromas of baked apple, flint, and biscuit. This Cremant de Limoux comes from the Loire Valley in France, and is made from Chardonnay, Mauzac, and Chenin Blanc. Dry and lively, its creamy textured mouse finishes with green apple and subtle tannins adding further complexity to the texture. A great base for sparkling cocktails like the Polish 75 or the ever popular Mimosa with Mother’s Day brunch. Tasted May 2018. 89 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
For centuries Limoux has produced wines known as Blanquette de Limoux that would naturally undergo secondary fermentation and sparkle. Champagne may have perfected the process, but Limoux lays claim to being the first. The Crément de Limoux style, introduced in 1990, is made from a blend comprised of 90% Chenin and Chardonnay with up to 10% Pinot Noir. An amazing value and a taste of history in one.

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
