What Is The French Sparkling Wine You Will Want To Keep A Secret?

What Is The French Sparkling Wine You Will Want To Keep A Secret?

What do you think of when thinking of French Champagne?  Popping sounds, celebrations and fun all come to mind.

We love the Champagne, but not the price tag!

The champagne wine region is located in the Northeastern part of France. Champagne is the name of the world famous sparkling wine we all know, but it is also the name of the region where this wine is made.  This stunning sparkling wine is from the town of Limoux is famous for being the fist to make sparkling wine in 1531. 

What if I could tell you of a stunning French sparkling wine that is made the same way as champagne, just not in the region?

Presenting to you L'Eglaise Saint-Martin Blanquette de Limoux.

A few weeks ago Hunter introduced me to this French sparkling wine, with the price tag os $14.99 per bottle and a 4.5 star rating.  He guaranteed that I would love it, but there were doubts.  How can a lover of French champagne like I am enjoy a bottle of sparkling wine for $14.99????  How wrong I was, and since then I have purchased many bottles.  The worst part is how much money have I wasted not purchasing this magnificent sparkling wine?

I did a test with many friends, to whom I poured a good quality French champagne in one glass, and L'Eglaise Saint-Martin Blanquette de Limoux in the other.  They could not tell me which was which!

L'Eglaise Saint-Martin Blanquette de Limoux is pale straw in colour and sparkles as it catches the sunlight.   It produces the aromas of fresh pear, crisp apple and hints of brioche rise gently from the glass, following with a  tantalising mix of Granny Smith apples , nashi pear and croissant flavours that seem to dance with thousands of tiny bubbles.

Amazing value  at only $14.99 per bottle, or $14.25 per bottle if you purchase 6 from Dan Murphy's.

We would love to hear what you think of this French sparkling wine.
