An authentic recipe from cafés of Southwest France in the 50s is coming back to life on a worldwide scale. Jean Pierre Xiradakis, owner of the infamous restaurant “La Tupina”, and the family of Ducourt, who have been making wines in Bordeaux since 1858, came together for the rebirth of a local heritage. Made from a meticulous blend of Bordeaux dry white wine, natural citrus aromas and a hint of fizz, Blanc Limé was a common drink during celebrations and festivals. Through the representations of the values of Southwest France, this wine is joyful, fizzy, refreshing, au naturel and slightly alcoholic, made to be enjoyed in countless of different places; from a sports match and a country-dance to bars and fine dining.
This sparking flavored wine-based drink has an annual production of 60,000 bottles and was perfected by oenologist Jérémy Ducourt who specializes in the science and study of all aspects of wine and winemaking. The white wine base is from Entre-Deux-Mers and is mainly Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. The natural citrus aromas include lime, grapefruit and orange. The nose is fresh and lively with lemony and zesty hints. Enjoy a nice chilled glass of Blanc Limé at 8-10 °C (46.4-50 °F) with canapés, tapas or seafood al fresco and taste the fresh, crisp sweetness of Bordeaux.
