The Italian wine writer Guiseppi Carrus features the Languedoc in Gambero Rosso’s April edition. « The small but beautiful and interesting » Rives-Blanques vineyard was highlighted in this thoughtful overview of the world’s biggest wine region.
Special emphasis was placed on Limoux, home of Blanquette de Limoux « the first sparkling wine in history ». Carrus cites a happy combination of Mediterranean and Oceanique influences to explain the crisp freshness with a touch of minerality, that compliments the fruitiness of our wines.
He selected two wines from the Rives-Blanques range for special attention: the Blanquette de Limoux, and Cuvée Occitania: both made from Limoux’s indigenous grape, mauzac.
