Home Crémant de Limoux Thomas Jefferson Brut
* FOOD AND WINE PAIRING *
Perfect as an aperitif served at 10°C, or matched with goat’scheese (Cabecou, Pelardon, Rocamadour…) and sweet desserts.
The Chenin and Chardonnay grapes bring texture and balance, with the Chardonnay also providing the fine bubbles. The Chenin adds vivacity, and enhances the crémant's impressive longevity. Cremant Thomas Jefferson reveals a beautiful, golden yellow robe. Complex, aromatic nose revealing hints of white flower, with hints of honey, green apple and toast. Crisp, elegant structure on the palate, where the fine texture of the bubbles complements the wine naturally.
The grapes are harvested early by hand, in order to retain a good level of acidity. Upon arrival at the winery, the fruit is immediately pressed in a pneumatic pressing machine. The must is transferred to the vats for alcoholic fermentation, using the same process used for still wines. The wine is then transferred to sealed bottles for fermentation, in accordance with the champagne method. To finish, we disgorge the bottles and perform the traditional dosage which is very precise in order to keep a real freshness and wine balance.
