Saint Hilaire Limoux Blanc de Blanc Brut 2002
from Languedoc-Roussillon, France
France's Oldest Sparkling Wine!
More than a century before champagne, the Benedictine Monks of the Abbey of Saint-Hilaire in the Southern foothills of Limoux had created France's Very First Sparkling Wine.
Today, over four and a half centuries later, Saint-Hilaire Blanquette de Limoux is made in the very same foothills of Southern France.

I purchased a case for the holidays, though I had never tasted it before. I liked the name and the story of the decadent monks. The Champagne's arrival led to me inviting more and more friends over a period of 3 days, to come taste the Champagne. Now it is all gone. :) It is buttery, more so than other champagnes, but that makes it distinct; a quality taste at a fantastic price point.

The first time I tasted Saint-Hilaire was at Paris Hotel in Las Vegas since it is their house champagne. Since then it has been my favorite sparkling wine and I have turn several of my friends to be their favorite.
