Maison Antech, Blanquette de Limoux Brut Nature, Cuvée Françoise, Languedoc, France

Producer Profile

For over five centuries, Maison Antech has tamed the magical terroir of Limoux to make fine sparkling wines.

The secret of their character lies in the combination of Limoux's three terroirs, which form the backbone of the cuvées: freshness from the Pyrenees, vinousness from the ocean, and roundness from the Mediterranean. From these terroirs, Mauzac and other grapes are cultivated, each bringing their own complexity and purity to the wines. This Cuvee, named after Francoise, daughter of the family and a member of the sixth generation celebrates her strong character and the part she plays in guarding her heritage and shaping their future.


Some of the Mauzac vineyards benefit from the influence of the Mediterranean climate, while others are located in the cooler mountains of the Pyrenees. The combination of the fruit makes for a perfectly balanced and complete wine.


Grapes are hand-harvested and undergo direct, slow and low-pressure pressing. Only the first, purest pressings of the juice are used for this cuvée. Aged on the lees for an average of 30 months. No dosage is added.
