"Coume" means the circus in Occitan, it also represents the place and the geographical location of the domain. "Lumet" means light to symbolize Luc's view of the entire Aude Valley and the Pyrenees!
The highly reasoned management of the vineyard favours tillage and listening to nature and is Terra Vitis certified. 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 sun necessary for the optimal maturity of the traditional local grape varieties (Syrah, Grenache, Merlot). While the ocean climate is marked by more freshness. It offers wines a beautiful acidity and is beneficial to Chardonnay, Chenin and Mauzac, the three grape varieties that make up the estate's Crémant.
Maset de Lumet, are aged only in stainless steel tanks, at low temperature, to combine all their aromas, freshness and the acidity necessary for their conservation. Coume-Lumet, on the other hand, must be 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 a computer engineer and applied mathematics engineer, and Isabelle, a master in psychology and a full-time mother of their three children Noé, Milo and Iris; they went on holiday in Languedoc-Roussillon in 2000 and fell in love with the region and its wines!
Then the growing children, the "midlife crisis" and the intuition that it is the right time to embark on the adventure... thus was born La Coume-Lumet! The research of the estate to last 4 years during which Luc and Isabelle were able to refine their project and especially learn the reality of the profession of winegrower supported by Matthieu, Luc's brother-in-law oenologist. In June 2012, Isabelle spotted an announcement concerning a small estate in the Limoux region with a pretty house just renovated and in a magnificent setting with woods and a few vineyards around. It is a real "encounter" with the charm, tranquility 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!
