Crémant de Limoux
50% Chardonnay, 40% Chenin Blanc, 10% Pinot Noir.
This wine is produced in a traditional method with a second fermentation taking place in the bottle. This wine has a low, 6 grams of residual sugar per liter, in comparison to Brut champagne which generally ranges from 9 to 14 grams per liter.
Balanced, elegant Crémant de Limoux, with no rough edges. The Chardonnay gives the wine brightness and a lively acidity, the Chenin Blanc adds richness and texture, and the Pinot Noir adds depth to the wine. Given that this is Collin’s entry-level sparkling wine, this is an impressively balanced and complex wine. It is truly a testament to what this relatively obscure vineyard area is capable of producing.
