Limoux and its wine appellations
Dating back 80 years, the name Blanquette-de-Limoux is the oldest appellation in Languedoc. Through personal stories and documents, journalist Christelle Zamora and photographer Arnaud Späni tell the tale of Limoux appellation wines and sparkling wines and their history: the Midi reds crisis, the conquest of new markets and their heritage. Unique in its kind, the AOC Limoux remains a stronghold of Languedocienne effervescence as well as a great terroir for white wines. Cultivated in the Occitanie region, these wines anchor a specific terrain sandwiched between two micro-climates, truly an asset for the entire region. Produced with the support of Limoux vintage wine producers and three-star chef Gilles Goujon, this book holds a place amongst beautiful coffee table books.
