For the love of... Mom!
Today’s Je T’aime Methode Traditionnelle Brut Sparkling Wine is everything you hope for in a classic French bubbly. Light and refreshing, today’s wine is the perfect accompaniment for your Mother’s Day menu.
This is the second sparkling wine we’ve featured from Je T’aime, and they continue to amaze us with their wines. Not only are they elegant and delicious, but they are also incredibly budget-friendly.
If you’re looking for a fitting Mother’s Day wine, then the name says it all - Je T’aime.
Super pale straw yellow throughout, with the finest bubbles trailing up the glass.
Very light and fresh, with just ripened apricot and guava trailed by peach blossom, orange oil, lime zest, and a hint of acacia wood.
Elegant, almost delicate, flavors of white peach, green apple, and Meyer lemon are laid overtop sweet lemongrass, white herbal tea, and lilac.
On the finish, this wine has a near regal touch, with the soft fruit flavors paired with a pleasant, lifting tartness at the very edge of the tongue.
A homemade shrimp cocktail, served with avocado, red onion, and cilantro.

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.
