A Secret of Wine
The local soil is basically clay, sandstone and limestone. As the Mediterranean climate of the region, with its strong dry winds, has more Atlantic influences than most other wine regions in the Languedoc, this unique combination of soil and climate creates the perfect conditions for top wines with their own special character. On the right is a photo of my own favourite bubbles: the Blanquette de Limoux, demi-sec, medthode ancestrale' of the Domaine St. Jacques. ♥
Visit the website of the Domaine St. Jacques: www.blanquette-saintjacques.com. The Domaine St. Jacques also has a market stall on the Esperaza Sunday morning market.
Tips: Combine one of your excursions in Cathar Country with a wine tasting and/or start your group tour with a 'Meet & Greet' with some local bubbles!
Cheers, everyone! ♥
