Blanquette de Limoux

I was pretty pleased to see this in my local Tesco recently even if it does cost twice as much as it does in France. Blanquette de Limoux is a sparkling white from the Limoux area of southern France in the eastern Pyrenees and predates Champagne as the oldest sparkling wine in the world. I just used to buy it as a cheaper version of Champagne whenever the occasion called for something cold and fizzy without really knowing anything about it’s history but it’s a nifty little tipple in it’s own right.
