#BlanquetteDeLimouxAOC #BlanquetteDeLimouxCarteNoir n/v #MaisonVergnes - Languedoc-Roussillon, France (personal rating: 89) * #Mauzac 93% #Chardonnay 4% #CheninBlanc 3% #TraditionalMethod #SparklingWine - One of best cost performance sparkling wine of traditional method.
Tried this wine in a Japanese restaurant in Rome. Looking for a dry sparkling, I picked this French one for curiosity.
At nose comes apple as main and citrusy tones, white flowers. In the mouth, sensed good acidity and freshness.
With raw fish technically no disturbance in flavor.Can go even with raw oyster with no problems.
Matches quite well especially fish which has greasy texture and sweet tendency as taste like Salmon, (I do not eat for allergy but) prawn and crab. Should be also compatible with fried dish like Tempura.
I has been a good discovery for a reasonable traditional method sparkling, when not feeling like Prosecco (Charmat method).
