Happy Mother’s Day to all Mums.
Hope you are being spoilt — you deserve it.
I celebrated with a wonderful French bubbly.
A beautifully balanced composition of 65% Chardonnay, 25% Chenin Blanc, and 10% Mauzac, produces a poetic Crémant expressing the character of Languedoc. Cuvée Brut Aguila has a registered designation of origin.
The southern French region of Limoux, which sits in the cool foothills of the Pyrenees mountains, has a long-established reputation for unique sparkling wine. Here, Chenin Blanc and local Mauzac grape add intrigue to Chardonnay, giving pretty floral and peach notes backed up by lemon and red apple. Light and fresh, with persistent mousse.

PLENTY OF PLEASURE
Crémant de Limoux tasted 100% blind by the Best Sommelier of the World, Andreas Larsson.
I’d highly recommend this elegant wine.
You don’t even have to be a Mum to love it.
