Saint Hilaire Limoux Blanc de Blanc Brut 2003
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 was gifted a bottle of this for my birthday. Saved it for about a year and opened for a special ocaision. I LOVED it, and was sure it cost the giver at least $35. Recently found the label and looked it up online since I haven't found it in any stores. What a surprise to find the price is so reasonable! My "house" sparkling wine used to be Domaine Chandon, but now it's St. Hilaire!

First tried it New Years Eve. 9 months later, I had the pleasure of drinking it again. Even better while relaxing! This wine beats the taste of true champagnes with half its history and 4 times its price. Not sweet, lemon-berry undertones. And a FINE effervescence, if you know what I mean.
