Light golden in color with vibrant aromas and flavors of baked apple, white cherry and lemon meringue. From gourmet caviar and oysters to popcorn, Faire la Fête is a versatile wine that pairs well with a range of dishes and cuisines. Try with an Asian pear salad, spicy tuna rolls, or pork chops and applesauce.

COMMENTARY: One of the unsung places to discover top-quality sparkling wines in the value category is France's Crémant de Limoux. The Faire la Fête Brut is bright and pleasing. TASTING NOTES: This wine plays nicely on the palate and provides excellent aperitif and first-course imbibing. Pair its lovely aromas and flavors of ripe apples, hints of mineral, and honeydew accents with mild cheeses and country pâtés. (Tasted: April 4, 2020, San Francisco, CA)

Says Master Sommelier, Peter Neptune, “Faire la Fête offers a sparkling wine experience that is as good or better than most non-vintage Brut Champagne that I’ve tasted, and at 1/3rd the price!” Indeed, this message has begun to resonate with wine consumers nationally and has been echoed by The Robb Report which named Faire la Fête as one of “20 Stellar Wines Under $100,” in January 2020. Faire la Fête was the only sparkling wine in that top rating! Likewise, the October 2019 issue of The Somm Journal rated Faire la Fête Rosé 3.5 of 5 bubbles, or a “strong/superb example of its kind!” 

Sparkling wine was invented in Limoux (lee-moo), France, in 1531. This was more than 100-years before any sparkling wines were being made in Champagne, France. Faire la Fête is a grower-produced sparkling wine that is hand-harvested, whole-cluster pressed, and aged for 15-months en tirage, meaning in its own bottle. This is the same quality production standard as Non-Vintage Brut Champagne. This method of secondary fermentation—known as the Traditional Method—originated in Limoux and was later adopted in Champagne, where it was re-named the Champagne Method. The traditional method of fermentation imparts delicate bubbles and rich flavors to Faire la Fête. 

Faire la Fête is also lower in sugar than most non-vintage Brut Champagne and California sparkling wines. Faire la Fête contains 1/3rd the sugar of the leading Prosecco brands. At 6 grams/liter, Faire la Fête Brut contains less than one gram of sugar per glass.

In French, Faire la Fête means “to party.” The name pays homage to the nearly 500-year old Mardi Gras party that takes place every year in the villages of Limoux celebrating their heritage as the inventors of sparkling wine.

An appellation in the cooler, elevated, southern Languedoc and internationally recognized for its sparkling wines, Cremant de Limoux by definition must be comprised predominantly of Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc with only miniscule amounts of the indigenous white variety, Mauzac.

This is in contrast to the more regional sparkler, Blanquette de Limoux, created from mainly Mauzac with tiny amounts of Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc.

A term typically reserved for Champagne and Sparkling Wines, non-vintage or simply “NV” on a label indicates a blend of finished wines from different vintages (years of harvest). To make non-vintage Champagne, typically the current year’s harvest (in other words, the current vintage) forms the base of the blend. Finished wines from previous years, called “vins de reserve” are blended in at approximately 10-50% of the total volume in order to achieve the flavor, complexity, body and acidity for the desired house style. A tiny proportion of Champagnes are made from a single vintage.

There are also some very large production still wines that may not claim one particular vintage. This would be at the discretion of the winemaker’s goals for character of the final wine.
