November 2010 The US wine magazine Wine Enthusiast, cites the Rives-Blanques Blanquette de Limoux as one of the best in its December issue.

In an article about sparkling wines, the American Wine Enthusiast magazine highlights the French origin of these wines, in Limoux.

Illustrating the article is a photograph of one of the Rives-Blanques fields of Mauzac, the grape variety from which its historic Blanquette de Limoux is made, being planted by the property’s original owner. The first commercial Maison de Blanquette, Veueve Tailhan, was sold in around 1987; the property was later renamed Rives-Blanques when taken over by its current owners. Also illustrating the article are two old labels from the Veuve Tailhan days, showing that Blanquette de Limoux from this house was already winning awards in the 19th century.
