A great value French sparkling from the Languedoc, blending Mauzac with a little Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc. Pale yellow in colour with golden reflections and fine bubbles. The nose expresses the spring flowers and fresh apple and pear. The palate is lively, harmonious and round.

 

About the producer: For over five centuries, Maison Antech has tamed the magical terroir of Limoux to make fine sparkling wines. The secret of their character lies in the wise combination of Limoux's three terroirs, which form the backbone of the cuvées: freshness from the Pyrenees, vinousness from the ocean and roundness from the Mediterranean.

From these terroirs Mauzac and other grapes are cultivated each bringing their own complexity and purity. This cuvée is named after Francoise, daughter of the family and part of the 6th generation, involved in the winery for over 20 years she has continued to help guide the maison cherishing its heritage but always looking to the future.
