In Stock Now!
From 90% Mauzac, the traditional variety of Limoux, with 10% Chardonnay. Pale lemon with a fine mousse. Aromas of ripe pear and white flowers with the notes of warm nuts and cinnamon characteristic of Mauzac. Crisp and elegant citrus and stone fruit flavours meld seamlessly and lead to a finely focused finish. A perfect aperitif. “Fresh green apple with a sort of rhubarb and custard character too. Loads of personality. A real charner. I can't think of a better sparkler at the price, 16.5/20" Richard Hemming MW www.jancisrobinson.com, 22nd September 2015
We have searched for many years for a sparkling wine from the south, and are delighted to have found Domaine J. Laurens. Founded in the 1980s, the domaine blossomed with the arrival in 2002 of locally born Jacques Calvel who saw its potential, and an opportunity to return home. The fruit from 30 hectares is hand harvested and vinified in a new dedicated facility. The wines are aged for between 1 and 2 years before release. In addition to meticulous winemaking the attention to detail extends to the stylish presentation; an often overlooked factor in choosing sparkling wines.
