Salasar Carte Azur, Crémant de Limoux Brut
Languedoc-Roussillon, France NV (750 ml)
Limoux, in the southwest, is reputed to be the first French region where winemaking monks intentionally captured bubbles in their wine. While champagne commands the cachet, reputation and price of a luxury wine, the bubblies of Limoux offer surprising value and quality. The Salasar bursts with ripe tropical fruit flavors that are carried by the bubbles to every taste bud in your mouth before slowly retreating, allowing you to appreciate the wine itself. Given 3 Stars and named a Great Value by the Washington Post.
