Crisply dry but fruity methode traditionelle Crémant from the foothills of the Pyrenees. Marie-Claire and Pierre Fort, after many years spent in the Loire valley came home to their roots in Limoux and created a tiny, bijou sized estate in a perfect location at a thousand feet above sea level. The vines, mostly chardonnay with a little pinot were planted around 40 years ago and are farmed sustainably with the idea of moving towards full organic farming in the years to come.
|In the foothills of the Pyrenees;at the crossroads of the Atlantic and Mediterranean influences, lies the little Languedoc village of Roquetaillade. It is here that Marie-Claire and Pierre Fort have established
their small, family owned parcel Domaine de Mouscaillo. The Forts work in tune with nature,
leaning towards organic practices, and very little intervention in the wine-making process.
Their Cremant de Limoux is a blend of 70% Chardonnay, 20% Chenin Blanc, and 10% Pinot
Noir. It is made using the traditional method and disgorged with no added dosage. Aromas
of ripe apple, lemon zest, and white flowers lead to a fresh crisp and slightly saline palate.
Serve as an aperitif or with salads.
