"Coume" means circus in Occitan, it also represents the place and the geographical location of the estate. As for "Lumet", it means light to symbolize the view that Luc has over the whole Aude valley and the Pyrenees! The vineyard management, very well thought out, favours working the soil and listening to nature and is certified Terra Vitis. The geographical location of the estate allows the vines to benefit from several different climates. Thus Luc has the possibility to work according to the grape varieties and the aromatic palette he wishes to develop. The Mediterranean climate offers temperate temperatures and the sunshine necessary for the optimal ripening of the local traditional grape varieties (Syrah, Grenache, Merlot). While the oceanic climate is marked by more freshness. It gives the wines a nice acidity and is beneficial to Chardonnay, Chenin and Mauzac, the three grape varieties that make up the estate's Crémant. The Maset de Lumet, are only aged in stainless steel vats, at low temperature, to conversely all their aromas, their freshness and the acidity necessary for their conservation. The Coume-Lumet wines are aged in barrels for 9 months. The Crémant follows the traditional Champagne method. We wanted it raw and aromatic. It is kept on slats for 18 months before disgorging.
The history of the creation of this domain is based on a Meeting! Luc, then an engineer in computer science and applied mathematics, and Isabelle, a master's degree in psychology and full-time mother of their three children Noé, Milo and Iris, went on holiday to Languedoc-Roussillon in 2000 and fell in love with the region and its wines! Then, as the children grew up, "the midlife crisis" and the intuition that it was the right time to embark on the adventure... thus was born La Coume-Lumet! The search for the estate lasted 4 years during which Luc and Isabelle were able to refine their project and above all learn the reality of the winemaking profession with the help of Matthieu, Luc's oenologist brother-in-law. In June 2012, Isabelle spotted an advertisement for a small estate in the Limoux region with a pretty house just renovated and in a beautiful setting with woods and a few vines around. It is a real "encounter" with the charm, quietness and energy of a wine estate. Let's go for the "crazy adventure"!
As good epicureans, we love wine and French cuisine. For us, one cannot go without the other. Here we wanted to share with you some culinary agreements, tested and approved! Be curious and surprised by our Crémant as an aperitif on toast or with an old Parmesan cheese or even on a Savoyard fondue!
