Domaine J. Laurens, Crémant de Limoux 'La Rose No.7'
Since 2003 Pinot Noir has been permitted in a Crémant de Limoux blend, leading to J.D.Laurens making their first NV rose in 2007. Don't let the baby pink fool you – La Rose No7 is a seriously good sparkling rosé!
This beautifully balanced wine shows delicate soft stone fruit aromas, nuances of caramel and cream with a nice biscuity finish.
JLaurens produce both Mauzac-dominated Blanquette de Limoux and Chardonnay-based Crémant de Limoux from their 30ha of organically-farmed vineyards slightly south-west of Carcassone. The domaine was established by a champenois in the 80s and is today owned by Jacques Calvel, who surrounded by an expert local team, has built the domaine's current reputation for outstanding sparkling wines.
