Limoux - Languedoc Roussillon

Thus was born the "Bulle de Limoux" formerly called "ancestral method" or "rural" method, basically the ancestor of champagne. Limoux is in Aude in the Languedoc-Roussillon region, turn to the Pyrenees, which area is constituted by a thriving countryside and slopes of clay-calcareous lands. Antech Maison, founded in 1933, by six generations is specializes in the development of sparkling wines for AOC appellations Crémant and Blanquette de Limoux.
