"Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication" LdV

This very simple cocktail has a quick! Not too much but still. You can easily now, find Blanquette de Limoux in London. As you know, I always realize my cocktail with Crémant, Prosecco or Blanquette, NEVER EVER with a Champagne. Champagne has to be served on its own. By the way, do you know the Blanquette ?
Blanquette de Limoux is considered to be the first sparkling white wine produced in France, created long before the Champagne region became world renowned for the Champagne.
The first textual mention of "blanquette", from the Occitan expression for "the small white", appeared in 1531 in papers written by Benedictine monks at an abbey in Saint-Hilaire. They detail the production and distribution of Saint-Hilaire's blanquette in cork-stoppered flasks. The region's location, north of the Cork Oak forest of Catalunya, gave Limoux producers easy access to the material needed to produce secondary fermentation in the flask, which produces the bubbles necessary for sparkling wine.
In 1938, Blanquette de Limoux became one of the first AOCs established in the Languedoc region.(Source : Wikipedia).
