Domaine Mayrac Organic Cremant de Limoux
Domaine Mayrac Cremant de Limoux is a superb organic sparkling wine, more in the style of Champagne being rich and biscuity, rather than the fruitier, greener Prosecco style - if you want that style opt for their Blanquette instead.
The Cremant differs from the Blanquette de Limoux as it is permitted (and required) to contain more Chenin and Chardonnay plus a drop of Pinot Noir, as well as some Blanquette.
Unsurprisingly it is very "champagne" in style. Pale gold in colour with strong fruit flavours. It's "naturalness" and balance shine through and you find yourself just drinking it down and pouring more without consciously deciding to do so! Great presentation too. An ideal wine for a celebration.
