About

For over five centuries, Maison Antech has tamed the magical terroir of Limoux to make fine sparkling wines.

The secret of their character lies in the combination of Limoux's three terroirs, which form the backbone of the cuvées: freshness from the Pyrenees, vinousness from the ocean, and roundness from the Mediterranean. From these terroirs, Mauzac and other grapes are cultivated, each bringing their own complexity and purity to the wines. This Cuvee, named after Francoise, daughter of the family and a member of the sixth generation celebrates her strong character and the part she plays in guarding her heritage and shaping their future.

An assemblage of old vine parcels located both on the Mediterranean and the higher altitude slopes of Limoux, offers a unique balance between complexity and freshness. Stony, south-facing hillsides, almost 400m above sea level produce expressive fruit. Certified by Terra Vitis, which recognises integrated sustainable viticulture, championing the indissoluble link between the vine and terroir, to produce authentic wines with only the lightest impact on the environment.  Grapes are handpicked and go directly into the press. The first fermentation takes place in stainless steel vats. The various parcels are then blended and the wine goes into bottle for secondary fermentation, where it ages on the lees for at least 30 months. Finally, a dosage is added using reserve wine to balance the wine.
