Laurens Cremant de Limoux Graimenous

Laurens Cremant de Limoux Graimenous

J.Laurens produces both Mauzac-dominated Blanquette de Limoux and Chardonnay-based Crémant de Limoux from their 30 hectares of sustainably-farmed vineyards, slightly to the south-west of Carcassone. The domaine was established by Champenois Michel Dervin in the 1980s, and since 2002, it has been owned by the locally-born entrepreneur Jacques Calvel. He has surrounded himself with an expert team led by winemaker Henri Albrus, and he has built the domaine's current reputation for outstanding sparkling wines.

Vineyards

The Limoux is extremely windy: the Vent Cers from the Atlantic and the warm Vent Narin from the Mediterranean blow through the vineyards, assisting the domaine's reasoned agriculture"„¢ approach to viticulture. The soil in the area is rocky with clay, sandstone and limestone, creating a distinct terroir across the region. Vines are hand harvested as prescribed by the AOC Limoux regulations.

Vinification

This Chardonnay-based Crémant de Limoux (as opposed to a Mauzac-dominated Blanquette de Limoux) is made using the 'méthode traditionnelle'. First fermentation is in stainless steel vats to control the temperature with the secondary fermentation in bottle. The wine is then allowed to rest on lees for a minimum of twelve months before disgorgement, with a further fifteen months in bottle before release.

Tasting Notes

In the glass, this Crémant is brilliant with a pleasantly gentle fizz. Bright and citrussy, with just a hint of yeasty savouriness overlaying the lovely sweet fruit.

A natural choice for an apéritif or whenever the mood suits!
