The Producer

Antech Limoux

Antech Limoux

In the beginning of the 20th century, Eugénie Limouzy became one of the first women in Languedoc to manage a vineyard. In 1931, Eugénie’s niece Marguerite married Edmond Antech, a man of exacting method who took the estate’s wine and made it widely and commercially known.

His sons George and Roger succeeded him and kept the same philosophy of preserving Antech Limoux's history and melding tradition and modernity to craft exceptional wines. Together, they created new storehouses, and modernized the House. Georges devoted his professional life to developing the image and sales of the House, while Roger enthusiastically took on the technical aspects of running the vineyard.

Currently, Michèle, the eldest daughter of George, and her husband Jean-Christophe Chauvière have taken over the management of the vineyard and sell over one million bottles in France and abroad.

The Grape

Mauzac

Mauzac

The Mauzac grape is prolific in the Limoux region, but almost non-existent elsewhere, and produces a rustic wine with distinct aromas of fresh cut grass and apple-peel flavours reminiscent of apple cider.

The grape is the dominant component in Blanquette de Limoux, the Languedoc sparkling wine that can contain three grape varieties: Mauzac with a minimum of 90% of the blend, the balance with Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc.

The Region

Blanquette de Limoux

Blanquette de Limoux is one of the four appellation d'origine contrôlée (AOC) classifications for wines in the Limoux region of Languedoc – the other three being Blanquette de Limoux Méthode Ancestrale, Crémant de Limoux for sparkling wines and Limoux for still wines.

Blanquette de Limoux bears the honour of being the first sparkling wine to be produced in France, long before Champagne became the undisputed world leader for this style. Blanquette actually just means ‘white’ in the local Occitan language. In 1938, Blanquette de Limoux became the first AOC established in the Languedoc region.

Blanquette de Limoux can be a blend of three grape varieties: Mauzac must be the dominant grape with a minimum of 90 percent, with the balance made up by Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc.

The Mauzac grape is prolific in the Limoux region, but almost non-existent elsewhere, and produces a rustic wine with distinct aromas of fresh-cut grass and apple-peel flavours reminiscent of apple cider.
