(a.) Saint-Hilaire Blanc de Blancs, Limoux, France Acclaimed to be Thomas Jefferson’s favorite, 49 bottles were found in the cellar of his home Monticello at the time of his death. Saint-Hilaire is controversially reputed to be France’s first naturally sparkling wine, with historians noting production by the Benedictine Monks of the Abbey of Saint-Hilaire as far back as 1531, more than 150 years before Pierre Pérignon is credited with developing the same process.
(b.) 1817. Jefferson gave the state of North Carolina credit for producing "the first specimen of an exquisite wine," Scuppernong, and praised its "fine aroma, and chrystalline transparence." Writing to his agent in Marseilles about a recent shipment of Ledanon, a wine produced near the Pont du Gard, Jefferson declared it "excellent" and said it "recalled to my memory what I had drunk at your table 30. years ago, and I am as partial to it now as then." Elsewhere he described this vin de liqueur as having "something of the port character but higher flavored, more delicate, less rough."
