Looking to mix it up in the bubbly department this Valentine’s Day? Want something unique – and affordable?
Why not try a sparkling wine that predates Champagne by 150 years – Blanquette de Limoux.
This wine, made only in the Languedoc region of France, blends 90% Mauzac grapes with Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc to create its trademark fragrant flavors of white flowers and green apple.
Who knew that the good Benedictine monks of St. Hilaire Abbey began capturing the stars 150 years before Dom Perignon‘s champagne? Paired with chocolate-covered strawberries – super bliss!
