The appellation is located in the very west of the wine-growing region Languedoc in the department Aude (sometimes it becomes the region Southwest France attributed). The vineyards cover 1,800 hectares of vineyards at around 160 meters above sea level on a combination of light and stony clay and limestone soils. These extend on the southern slopes in the upper valley of the Aude over 41 municipalities with the main town Limoux next to Carcassonne. Protected by the Pyrenees, there is an oceanic-Mediterranean one climate in front. Limoux became known for its sparkling wines produced in the 16th century. There are three appellations:
Limoux for white and red Still wines (white 1981 and red 2005)
The classification as AOC took place at different times (see above). All wines belong to the second quality category "Grands Vins du Languedoc". Limoux Rouge is made from the varieties Merlot (50%), Cot. Syrah, Grenache Noir = Garnacha Tinta (to 30%) and Carignan Noir mazuelo (max. 10%) blended. Limoux Blanc is made from the varieties Mauzac Blanc (to. 15%), as well Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc vinified. There are around 400 producers, including Domaine de l'Aigle, Domaine de Fourn and Domaine de Martinolles.
