Crisp, fresh and toasty with green apple goodness and a lovely, racy seam of acidity for shellfish and fried chicken. Terrific value.
Crémant De Limoux food pairings: quiche Florentine, planked salmon, light curry dishes, tacos.

A zippy fresh Crémant, with lime zest, crisp pear and a hint of lees. Balanced. Tasted 2015 vintage in Nov 2017. 90 points. Great value. Crowd pleaser. #BespokeTastings

A clear pale sparkling Cremant de Limoux from the south of France. Apple and scents of fresh linen on the nose. Fresh acidity with citrus flavours. Medium finish with a touch of bitter nut. Tasted November 19, 2017.
|Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Citrus, green apple and freshly baked bread. Fine delicate thin bubbles. Crisp and zingy flavours with green apple skins, soft mousse, white grapefruit, light citrus and underripe pear. Also a light stoney mineral note as well. Light elegant body and refined finish. Dry, refreshing and light. Pair with light to medium cheeses, potato chips and charcuterie. 89 points - November 19, 2017
|Simon Chen rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
A nicely sparkling one. The bubbles are rich and lively (~3-5 seconds), On the plate, it's dry and refreshing.
|Emilie Ryan rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
A good sparkling for Sunday brunch…
Presentation: A basic label that lacks Bertrand’s typical, yet striking red and black Templar look, unfortunately
Appearance: Medium lemon
Nose: Medium nose, with notes of yeast, biscuit, lemon
Taste: Dry, medium-full body, high acidity, low tannins, with nice mouth feel, tiny, sharp bubbles with notes of sour lemon, brioche and minerals
Finish: Medium lemon rind
Overall impression: Should be a good sparkling for a Mimosa at a Sunday brunch.
|Nicole Lewis rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
From the original region of sparkling wine, predating champagne, this sparkling wine from Limoux is pale straw yellow, fine bubbles, yeasty nose, with Meyer lemon and Macintosh apples. Significant yeasty finish with moderate acidity. This wine offers an affordable everyday sparking wine for this with a penchant for champagne.

|Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
Fresh and spritzy, lime-lemon with a hint of toasted almond on the finish. Best with canapes.
|Caitlin Coleman rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:|
A Cremant de Limoux with lush bubbles. Ripe pear and fresh herbs with a touch of minerality. A perfect option for those who love the traditional method of champagne.
|Dan Carkner reviewed this wine as follows:|
Lemony-grassy-minerally nose with plenty of bread shop notes. Pithy citrus, white pepper, and yeasty bread dough on the palate. Fine pear and orchard flavours persist through the medium finish. The mousse is a little more aggressive than expected but quite enjoyable as a complete package.
Great as an aperitif, with oysters, or scallop ceviche.
