Mission Briefing

Codename:

I love you!

Impress your beloved with today’s Je T’aime Cremant de Limoux Brut Rosé, a dazzling French bubbly for under $20.

Enjoy this pretty sparkling French treat all on its own, or drop a strawberry in to jazz it up - and make it even more romantic.

This delightfully delicious wine was born in the rolling hillside vineyards of the hilly appellation of Cremant de Limoux, close to the Mediterranean. Cremant de Limoux often delivers the best value for the money over sparkling wines from any other French region.

While today’s romantically inclined Cremant is a wonderful solo-sipper, we also recommend it as a wonderful food wine. Enjoy it with picnic fare, including assorted cheeses, fresh fruits and even a tray of charcuterie.

Tasting Profile

Look:

A very pale salmon pink with a subtle copper tonal quality at its heart. The bubbles are very fine and slowly trail up the glass.

Smell:

Very elegant and subdued on the nose, with hints of freshly picked strawberry and raspberry, Meyer lemon zest, brioche, and a touch of vanilla bean.

Taste:

Bright and effervescent, with strawberry, cherry, and a touch of sweet plum balanced by a subtle notes of citrus and spice.

Finish:

Elegant, refined, and very smooth, this is an incredibly easy drinking and refreshing sparkling wine.

Pairing:

A perfect pairing for a chili-lime crab and avocado salad. Also lovely with a bit of dark chocolate.

What the Winery Says

Our Brut Rosé receives its delicate color from a short amount of time on the skins of the Pinot Noir grape. Its stylish bouquet of fresh strawberry and raspberry dazzles one’s senses. The bright, fresh fruit lead to a yeasty flavor that is crisp, balanced and graceful. Je T’aime has a lingering finish that will tempt you to take another sip!

About the Winery

Limoux is a town in the Pyrenean foothills. It is part of the Languedoc, but the terroir and the wines it produces are unlike any others in the region. Limoux is much cooler than nearby regions because of the extremely high elevation of the vineyards and the influence of the Atlantic. The ability of this climate to produce refreshing wines with bright acidity has led its residents to specialize in Blanquette de Limoux, the local sparkling wine. Some even claim that it was here, not in Champagne, that secondary fermentation in bottle was first practiced. The main grape variety is Mauzac, with a bit of Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc.

These sparkling wines are unique and a bit rustic – lovely if one wants to try something different. Cremant de Limoux denotes a more polished style.
