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."
— Wine Enthusiast (Top 100 Best Buys of 2002 and 2009)

Estate Bottled Saint-Hilaire - France's Oldest Sparkling Wine

Saint-Hilaire Collection

"Like table wine, sparkling wine is a global industry, and offering a variety of origins, styles and price points is important for maximizing bubbly sales potential. Saint-Hilaire, a Blanquette de Limoux, may stem from a tradition older than Champagne itself. Reliable Brands: Saint-Hilaire (Blanquette de Limoux)..."

"Saint-Hilaire Brut Blanquette de Limoux. This lively sparkler from Limoux-where monks were making sparkling wine long before Champagne-offers flavors of ripe pear, fresh ginger, almond skin and candied lemon zest. Drink now."

Sauvignon Blanc

Sauvignon Blanc
A crisp style of wine with the right amount of mineral and stone fruit, it features pink grapefruit, lime, and gooseberry flavors. It's perfect with shellfish, oysters and grilled shrimp.


This luscious wine offers tropical fruit aromas and creamy custard and ripe pear flavors. This bright, crisp wine pairs well with grilled white fish, pasta with white clam sauce, and grilled pork tenderloin.

Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir
Experience aromas of wild strawberries and rose petals. This supple and round wine offers flavors of berries and black cherries. Very lightly oaked, it allows the true fruit flavor to shine through. It's easy to enjoy on its own or with roast chicken/pork, veal, or mild cheeses.


Soft and velvety with ripe, juicy blackberries and overtones of mocha and blueberries, the Merlot shows nice complexity and richness. It's excellent with pizza, red pasta sauce dishes, or lightly grilled meats.

L'Exception Sparkling Wine
L'Exception is a superb Brut sparkling wine produced in France using the traditional champagne method. This sparkling wine is described as a Grand Cuvee because the grapes are selected from a very precise vineyard site identified for the outstanding quality of their soil and sub-soil.

L'Exception is ideal as an aperitif. The wine is also excellent served with a meal of salads, fish, and poultry. Its bouquet is crisp, lively, and elegant. Its aromas are a delicate blend of white flower, pear and other white flesh fruits and citrus. On the palate, the fine bubbles impart a creamy sensation, while the flavor of fresh fruit and toasted hazelnut linger long at the finish.
