Gilles Louvet "Bulles D'O" AOC Blanquette de Limoux (Languedoc- Rousillon, France)
90 % Mauzac 10 % Chardonnay
Gilles Louvet range of AOC wines are premium blends coming from the best vineyards of Languedoc and Saint-Chinian
This wine expertly represents the Terroir and the aromatic and mineral complexity of a local grape variety: the Mauzac. Racy with a sophisticated vinosity. Indicative of the Terroir of the Haute Vallée, its maturity is expressed through characters of honey from acacia trees. Well structured in mouth yet unctuous. The resulting wine is fresh and elegant with menthol notes.
Blanquette de Limoux is considered to be the first sparkling white wine produced in France, created long before the Champagne region became world renowned for its sparkling wine.
The name “Blanquette de Limoux” comes from the clear color of the Mauzac grape, also known as Blanquette in the Limoux language.
