A multitude of products to discover at Monluc

Monluc offers a variety of products: the famous Pousse Rapière, traditional method sparkling wines, still wines or Armagnacs, Flocs and liqueurs.

Pousse Rapière

It owes its name to the rapier, long, light sword brought back from the wars of Italy by Blaise de Monluc and his Gascon captains.
The liqueur, whose old recipe is kept well secret, is combined with the sparkling wine to make the « Pousse Rapière » cocktail.

Traditional method

The traditional method is the production of sparkling wine by fermentation in the bottle. It is the noble method par excellence. The wine is produced from the white grape varieties of Ugni-Blanc and Gros Manseng. The various batches obtained are then developed and blended to give the Cuvée, the final blend that will be bottled, accompanied by yeasts and sugar known as ‘liqueur de tirage’ a blend of sugar and yeasts.

1. Still wines

The still wines, as opposed to the traditional method are non-sparkling and come from the vineyards of the Gascon highlands. Among them, the Aubaines de Goupil and M de Monluc.

2. Armagnacs, Floc and liqueurs

Our Monluc Armagnacs, Floc and liqueurs are created according to a Gascon country family tradition !
