Saint-Hilaire Sparkling Wines
More than a century before champagne, the Benedictine Monks of the Abbey of Saint-Hilaire in the Southern foothills of Limoux created France's very first sparkling wine. Today, over four and a half centuries later, Saint-Hilaire Blanquette de Limoux is made in those very same foothills of Southern France.
After just one uncorking, you'll discover why the French compare Saint-Hilaire with their finest champagne. And it's available at a fraction of the cost. You'll never pay outrageous champagne prices again.
What They've Been Saying About SAINT-HILAIRE France's Oldest Sparkling Wine
"It remains one of the world's finest sparkling wines, and it constitutes the highest quality value ration of any sparkling wine in the world."
— International Wine of the Month Club
"I've tried more than 20 wines and the great discovery was the Saint-Hilaire Blanquette de Limoux Brut."
— The Grapevine (New York Post)
"It is probably the least-known well-made sparkling wine of France... Made primarily from the Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc and Mauzac grapes, the wines are qualitatively close to a high quality non-vintage Champagne at one-third the price."
— Robert Parker
"It's a pleasant and well balanced bubbly, perhaps the best value sparkling wine I've ever seen..."
— Wine Lovers Page
"This is a frisky sparkler with an attractive, yeasty aroma and luscious, creamy texture. It's also a remarkable value."
— The Philadelphia Inquirer
"A pretty and remarkably drinkable sparkler with soft green apple, tangerine oil and faint yellow floral notes accented with hints of lavender."
