SIEUR D'ARQUES AIMERY GRAND CUVEE 1531 (12 bottles)

WORLD CLASS FRENCH FIZZ – RANKED HIGHER THAN VEUVE CLICQUOT, POL ROGER, TAITTINGER AND PIPER HIEDSIECK!!

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.’

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!!!

Name:

WMC878AX

Vintage:

Non Vintage

Alcohol:

12.5%

Drink Until:

2014

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!

A very decent sparkling

This is as close to a good average French Champagne like Veuve Cliquot you'll get without paying the big bucks. Fine bubbles, a good balance and very morish...

I love this sparkling, and have been through many cases of it. Fantastic taste - I prefer this over a few of the very well known French bubbles in the $50-$100 range. So, to get something as good (in my view better) at Sieur price is stunning value. I have recommended this wine to more friends than any other wine ever.
