Vergnes N.V. Blanquette de Limoux (Mauzac)
Mauzac is Limoux’s calling card. A variety essentially unique to the region that provides the essence of what
makes this appellation different. Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Chenin Blanc have all made their mark in recent
decades, but it is Mauzac that imparts its singular green apple tones to the aroma. This is an unpretentious but
hugely satisfying sparkler, gentle, easy and suave, with perfectly judged dosage.
Aging Duration (months)
15 months on lees
Yes, during aging and in the bottle
Notes from the Producer: Entire bunches pressed out with pneumatic press. Racking at low temperature (8°C). Fermentation temperature controlled (18°C). Traditional method: first fermentation in vat then bottle fermentation follows (second fermentation). Bottles will be resting for 15 months at least on laths in air-conditioned cellar. 3 months before launching, bottles disgorging is done, then we add a "liqueur d’expedition" and we finish with the cork plugging.
