Bright, clear straw gold. White, quickly dissipating mousse. Baked apple and straw on the nose and palate. Biright acidity. Medium-light body. A tasty sparkling bargain at around $13 ($10 in states that don’t run alcohol monopolies), and a nice opportunity to drink a bit of history.

During the month of January, the Wednesday Wine Committee has a unique format...the sparkler, whites and dessert wines can be from any vintage and any location, but the reds must be from the 2007 vintage. It was my first time providing a wine for a lunch, so I was excited to see how it showed. As always, all wines were served blind.

This was the sparkler and my guess was between west coast sparkler or a French non vintage. There was a lot of fruit on this, mainly green apple. Not chalky or yeasty.

Quite sweet but fresh. Served as a palate cleanser, somewhat successfully.

So for $11 this should be everyone's go to casual #bubblesonabudget. I mean, can you imagine the conversations that ensue when you talk about little talked about Limoux and the Mauzac varietal? Has a slight sweetness from some of the blended Chenin blanc but the Mauzac amplifies that green apple skin bitterness from the Chardonnay. The zesty limestone soil influences shine here too. Some mildly spicy Thai food with peanut sauce would be delicious. #languedoc #mauzac #cremant #cremantdelimoux #limoux

happiness is outsmarting chain hotel's needlessly $$$ room service menu by sniping off the hidden $28 Limoux sparkling (fresh, light, crisp, apple-y) #wine & then Doordash-ing in Rangoon Ruby Burmese food

A great top value French sparkling. Fruity notes of green apple, and pear, with toasty crispness.
