J Laurens Crémant de Limoux ‘Les Graimenoux Brut’: Better than Champagnes at twice the price: Case of 12 bottles delivered
Master of Wine Jancis Robinson called this delectable, full-flavoured dry sparkling wine ‘mountain stream stuff’. Made as Champagne, J Laurens Crémant de Limoux ‘Les Graimenoux Brut’ is an exceptional wine—a tête de cuvée—upon which the reputation of Domaine J Laurens is built.
First impressions are of an intense and complex nose of citrus and dried fruits, honey with a touch of green apple. On the palate, we find all the expression of a well-rounded wine, of toast with fresh fruits, lime and hazelnuts. Long finish.
Members love this as a Champagne aperitif, and it’s delicious with tapas, seafood, white meat and cheese. Varietal: 60% Chardonnay, 30% Chenin, 5% Mauzac, 5% Pinot Noir.
