August 2012: The 2013 edition of the Guide des Meilleurs Vins de France (« le Guide Vert ») published by La Revue du Vin de France selects 9 wines from the Rives-Blanques range

The results of the selection of the 1300 ‘best vineyards’ in France has been published by La Revue du Vin de France, after a tasting of nearly 8000 wines.

Its respected ‘Green Guide’ le Guide des Meilleurs Vins de France 2013 included the three Rives-Blanques sparkling wines, four Limoux still white wines, our chardonnay-chenin country wine, and for the first time, the Late Harvest.


« The Rives-Blanques chardonnay is a rich and fresh wine, with excellent balance; the chenin blanc is dryer and more dense; while the mauzac, cuvée Occitania unites the richness of the south with the freshness of Limoux. »

« The effervescents » they say, « are of very good quality and show off Limoux’s potential », while the still wines « are a sure bet ». The late harvest Lagremas d’Aur « is a most original and aromatic expression of acacia honey ».
