Blanquette de Limoux is probably the oldest sparkling wine in the world. We know that in 1531, the Benedictine Monks of the Abbey of Saint-Hilaire were already producing Blanquette de Limoux which certainly makes it France's Oldest Sparkling Wine preceding Champagne by more than a century.

By 1794 Blanquette de Limoux was well known and appreciated throughout France. About that time, it was discovered by a famous American, Thomas Jefferson.

Among his other talents, the third American President was an expert on French Wines and Blanquette de Limoux, one of his favorites, was an integral part of his wine cellar. In fact, President Jefferson was probably the first person to bring the wine to America.

Today, Blanquette de Limoux has won the acclaim of knowledgeable wine enthusiasts throughout the world.

It is sold in the United States under the name SAINT-HILAIRE in honor of the monks who first created the wine more than 475 years ago. One taste of SAINT-HILAIRE quickly reveals why France's Oldest Sparkling Wine is also its' best.

Mustafa

Daniel's review is spot on

"Not the best sparkler under $20 that I've had but comes darn close and comparable, for example, than Veuve clicquot's nv yellow label"

Ursula

Better than Most "real Champagners

Donald

History helps!

"It's a decent sparkling wine and an excellent value, but the history makes it seem so much better!"

Daniel

Nice substitute for Champagne

"Definitely French. Cremant. More similar to real Champagne than to Cava, Prosecco, or California sparkling, etc. Pleasant. Reasonable price point. Have been enjoying it for several years now. Well received by most of my friends with "more expensive" palates."
