Grande Cuvee Brut 2016


Green apples - Fresh - Fine - Easy

The combination of half chardonnay and half chenin blanc gives this wine a creamy character as well as a linearity. Having been made in stainless steel tanks the wine is fresh and bright. Super easy to drink and a great introduction to a Cremant de Limoux from the Antech family. If you want to try something more honeyed try the Grand Cuvee 2010 - a number of bottles were kept back and aged on lees and gives the wine a brioche and honeyed character, finishing with some rhubarb notes.

50% Chardonnay
50% Chenin Blanc

Maison Antech
Producer Profile Maison Antech
Earlier this year we were delighted to catch up with the dynamic and delightful Francoise Antech-Gazeau. Francoise is the 6th generation of winemakers in their family business and we were not at all surprised to see that her father Georges, at nearly 90 years of age, is still involved in the business. Making only sparkling wines from the Limoux region, Francoise has adopted integrated sustainable agriculture as their means of growing and production, and she has sustainable development certification to show that they recycle waste, minimise energy consumption, and engage with environmentally responsible suppliers. All grapes are hand-picked and vinified separately for the initial fermentation, prior to the secondary fermentation in the bottle.

This Spring we are introducing three Maison Antech wines. their Crémant Grand Cuvee 2015 and a special selection form 2010 for which a mere 5000 bottles were retained and kept on lees for an additional period, producing a rich, brioche… dare we say Champagne style. And finally, a wonderful summery Crémant Rose.
