Tasting Notes

A sparkling wine from Limoux based on fruit grown on limestone and clay-based soils in Mouscaillo and Saint Pierre. Hand-harvested and then fermented in 600 liter casks. The second fermentation is started with grape must from the harvest. The wine is left on the lees for 18 months before disgorgement. Mouscaillo is a domaine built out of strong character by the aptly named Pierre and Marie-Claire Fort on an exceptional terroir. The Fort family started their winemaking endeavors in 2004 after befriending Didier Dagueneau.

These days, one of the most exciting stories is in South Africa, where newly...
