Appellation Limoux Protégée

Grape variety:  Mauzac

 

Occitania is a uniquely ‘Limoux’  wine,  and we are passionate about it.  Mauzac has been thriving in our hills for over 600 years, and is generally associated with Blanquette de Limoux, the oldest sparkling wine in the world.

Occitania was Limoux’s first  modern non-sparkling white wine made from this traditional Renaissance grape variety.

Normally we end our harvest in Les Moulignieres, a beautiful  field of uncloned 50-year old vines, reserved exclusively for Occitania. This extra hang-time plus careful vinification in seasoned oak barrels gives added richness, making Occitania a delicious food wine: lovely and creamy in the mouth with a lot of peach and apricot, finishing off with a touch of vanilla.

Occitania features on the wine-lists of several Michelin-starred restaurants around the world.

A fascinating curiosity
