  • Don't just take our word for it - the reviews are in and the Winemarketeers are loving this Sparkling! Check out the Ratings and Reviews tab above!...

All good wine should excite and beguile but very few liquids can sharpen a celebration and awaken anticipation quite like fine sparkling wine.

It's almost as if we're hardwired to put on our party hats and slip on our dancing shoes as soon as those magical little bubbles tickle our noses and explode across our tongues. It's about as mood enhancing a substance you can get without breaking the law.

This value for money sparkling is no exception, the tasting note goes as follows: ‘Indulge yourself in this subtle, elegant sparkling wine. Its yellow robe with green lights reveals delicate, beautiful bubbles. Its fresh, lively, gracious nose is dominated by white flower and citrus aromas. The attack is fresh and creamy with delicately lemony flavors that slowly make way for longlasting candied, mineral notes at the finish.’

This has been the hands-down, undisputed office favourite at WineMarket for a few years now, and while soaring popularity and worldwide recognition have pushed the price up a dollar or so since we first had it, it's still up there with the best deal on quality bubbles on earth.

So what are you waiting for, pick up a case or two today and get those corks popping!

And now for the bling – 16 GOLD MEDALS!!!

Bust out the Top Rated French bubbles!

Name:

WMC878AX

Vintage:

Non Vintage

Alcohol:

12.5%

Regions:

France - Languedoc-Roussilon

Winemaker:

Aimery Sieur d'Arques

Varieties:

Chardonnay Mauzac Chenin Blanc

Food:

Crayfish, scallops, fish or warm chicken salad

Background:

The Crémant de Limoux is a sparkling wine blended from three grape varieties: Mauzac gives it a delicious bouquet of green apples and honey, Chardonnay, the key to many fine wines, gives it a typical hint of flowers, Chenin gives it a sparkling freshness and elegant structure. The Wine Waiter’s recommendations: Aimery's Grande Cuvée 1531 is perfect for cocktails. It goes well with fish and exotic dishes. As an A.O.C. wine it is top quality and it also offers value for money. What makes Grande Cuvée 1531 an especially fine wine ? The grapes are hand picked in low yield vineyards in the upper Aude Valley. Yielding: The Cuvée is blended from first pressings only (tête de cuvée). Using the ancestral method, the wine is bottled and left to mature for two years giving it a “sur lattes“ typical, more intense, flavour and rich aroma.

Colour:

Golden yellow with green lights

Nose:

Lively, fresh white flowers and citrus

Palate:

A delicate blend of Chardonnay, Mauzac and Chenin Blanc grapes gives a beautifully bubbly bead with a fresh, creamy mouthful. Lemony citrus notes blend through into a lengthy candied finish with mineral notes.

Highlights:

High quality for a bargain price - the Aimery Grand Cuvee is elegant, refined and subtle. Fruit is hand-picked from low yield vineyards in the Aude Valley. The ancestral method used to produce this classic style creates an intense, flavour-driven French sparkling wine with rich aroma

Winery Information:

Sieur D'Arques is located in Limoux, the heart of the Languedoc in France. The monks at the Saint Hilaire monastery are rumoured to have discovered the secret to Champagne many years before the much-lauded Dom Perignon. Not much has changed since then: this Aimery Grand Cuvee may not carry the Champagne title on its label, but on the tongue it matches up with the big names like Clicquot and Taittinger. This French sparkling does it all, and quietly.. without all of the massive advertising spend of a big-brand Champagne!

This is bubbly no one has a reason to dismiss. It's as good as Veuve Cliquot in my humble opinion, and it's a third the price! What's not to like? Only my desire to keep it to myself I guess, but I'm not that kind of person. I like to share good times! Go on, try it. You won't be disappointed.

Been purchasing Sieur D'arques Aimery Grand Cuvee for years now.....so have all our friends and colleagues after being indoctrinated by us!
No-one can believe the quality; no-one can believe the price; no-one can believe it is a french import of quality. EVERYONE keeps purchasing and spreading the word, although we all really want to keep it a sort of secret for ourselves!
But what can you do when you get asked time and time again 'Wow! Where did you get this and how can we get some?'

My wife absolutely loves this Bubbly and is amazed with its affordability. She refers to it as the "Nectar of the Gods" . I have the occasional tippet but my taste buds are drawn towards another Bubbly that's somewhat amber in presentation and not as French.
