J. Laurens: A Sparkling Legacy

History and Heritage

Nestled in the southern French village of 'La Digne d'Aval,' near the historic city of Carcassonne, the Domaine J.Laurens has been crafting sparkling wines since the 1980s. This dedication to quality sparkling wines, including the Blanquette and Cremant de Limoux, has solidified its reputation in France and internationally. The winery's history is marked by significant milestones, such as Michel Dervin's establishment of the vineyard in the 1980s, Jacques Calvel's takeover in 2002, and ongoing enhancements to ensure high-quality production. The domain's commitment is encapsulated in its creed: "Quality always rather than quantity sometimes."

The Sparkling Process

Embracing the traditional 'méthode traditionnelle,' J. Laurens ensures the production of sparkling wines with clear, pure juices. The process involves a first fermentation in stainless steel vats and a second in-bottle fermentation induced by adding sweet juice and yeasts. Rigorous adherence to AOC Limoux regulations, including hand-harvesting, uncrushed grapes, and resting wines on lees for specific periods, exemplifies their commitment to quality and tradition.

Tasting Experience

The J. Laurens 'Cremant de Limoux' Brut is an exceptional sparkling wine that belies its price point, offering an expensively-tasting experience at an affordable cost. It presents a harmonious blend of pear, orange, and dried fruits on the nose, with a round palate featuring pear, green apple, and citrus zest notes. This sparkling wine is certified for High Environmental Value, incorporating grape varieties such as Chardonnay, Mauzac, Chenin Blanc, and Pinot Noir.

Perfect Pairings

This sparkling Brut is an ideal companion for a variety of occasions and pairings:

  • A light, refreshing match for fresh fruit and light cheese plates.
  • A delightful addition to brunch parties, especially when served as Mimosas.
  • An excellent complement to shellfish extravaganzas, enhancing the flavors of the sea.

With its rich history, meticulous production process, and delightful tasting notes, the J. Laurens 'Cremant de Limoux' Brut is a testament to the excellence of French sparkling wines.
