Gerard Bertrand Thomas Jefferson Cremant de Limoux Brut 2016 (750ml)
Limoux is the area where sparkling wine originated. In 1531, the monks of Saint Hilaire discovered the first wine with bubbles. Situated in the foothills of the Pyrenees, these vineyards benefit from the cool conditions required to make sparkling wines of quality.
This exceptional quality had even founded an echo across the Atlantic : The White House. Indeed, Thomas Jefferson, was Limoux’ greatest admirer, and he discretely cultivated his love for France and for Limoux sparkling wine. Actually, wine from Limoux was was the only sparkling wine to be found in his personal cellar.
