Limoux, Languedoc-Roussillon, France.
Maison Salasar, founded in 1890, is located in the Haute-Vallée de l’Aude in Campagne sur Aude. Its 60 hectare vineyard located within the Blanquette and Crémant de Limoux appellation benefits from a major climatic advantage since it is located in mid-mountain ranges between 300 and 500 m above sea level at the foot of the Pyrenees.
Three generations have contributed to the reputation of this House, which has become a reference in the world of bubbles. Since February 2013, La Maison Salasar has joined the family entity of Domaines Bonfils. This merger has contributed to the renewal of the range which is now defined as nine expressions, four in Traditional Method and five in Crémant.
This New Collection is made with wines from Mauzac, Chenin, Chardonnay and Pinot grapes. The blends are established in accordance with the rules of the appellation and are accompanied by a finishing liqueur specific to Maison Salasar. 90% Chardonnay, 10% Chenin and Pinot Noir vinified in the traditional method. Doasge to extra dry.
Very light straw yellow color with yellow reflections. Very fine bubbles. Nose dominated by aromas of candied fruit and hazelnut. A mouth full of generosity and fruitiness. Very round crémant, well balanced between fruit and acidity.
Can be enjoyed as an aperitif or great with fish dishes.
