Since 2003, Pinot Noir has been permitted in a Crémant de Limoux blend, leading to J.Laurens making their first non-vintage rosé in 2007. Don't let the baby pink colour fool you – La Rose No7 is a seriously good sparkling wine!
Domaine J.Laurens, Crémant de Limoux 'La Rose No.7'
With two strong winds, the Limoux region is extremely windy: the vent cers from the Atlantic and the warm vent marin from the Mediterranean. The soil in the area is rocky with clay, sandstone and limestone, creating a distinct terroir throughout the region. Produced in the 'méthode traditionnelle', with an initial alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel followed by a second fermentation and ageing on lees in the bottle.
