This holiday season, diversify your bubbly selection with Limoux.
As sales of bubbly continue to trend, Crémant and Blanquette de Limoux offer the unique combination of Champagne quality at Prosecco prices: Limoux sparklers are made in the same was as Champagne but retail for far less.
Beloved by sommeliers and wine cognoscenti, this combination makes Limoux an ideal go-to wine to dress up a weekday dinner, as a gift for the discerning hostess or to help ring in the New Year.
Key Bubbly Facts:
- 62% of Millennials consume sparkling wine each month
- Limoux is second only to Champagne for US Imports
- Sparkling Wine sales in 2015 grew 8.7% versus 2014
Plus, written evidence suggests sparkling wine was being made in Limoux as early as 1531 – well before Champagne.
