Blanquette is predominantly made from the local grape variety Mauzac blended with Chardonnay and Chenin. The grapes are all hand harvested, only the first top quality pressing is used in this blend.

History:

In 1531, the Benedictine monks from the Abbey of Saint-Hilaire were producing a still wine made with Mauzac, the local grape variety, and discovered the 2nd fermentation in bottle and the Blanquette de Limoux, the oldest sparkling wine in the world, was born. Mauzac, the main grape variety of Blanquette is specific to the Limoux area, locally it is known as “Blanquette”, due to a fine white down which forms on its leaves. In the local dialect Langue d'Oc Blanquette means white
