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

Our Top-Selling French Sparkling Is Back!

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.’

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!!!

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!

We love this 'champagne'..in fact produced iver the road from Champagne district, and prefer it to many of the big names French bubbles. Very light and dry, no sweet aftertaste, goes with absolutely any food you'd like a glass of chilled champagne with and perfect on its own too.

Definitely five stars for value for money. Mrs Jay rates better than Moet and approaching Bollinger, which is saying something. At under $14 a bottle top drinking at a more than affordable price. For best flavours best consumed at normal fridge temp, not too chilled.

Really not quite as sophisticated as the hyperbole of your write ups suggests, but a lovely light and gentle sparkling that is not in the least embarrassing to open before dinner for friends who have dropped in, or take along as a contribution to some one you like's party. Always glad to have a few bottles in the cupboard and it doesn't break the bank! Hope you keep stocking it.

Best French champagne

by
The SIEUR-DARQUES-AIMERY-GRAND-CUVEE-1531-CREMANT-deLIMOUX is tough to say and write but easy to drink. This is by far the best French champagne for the price. Surprisingly comparable to mumm and domaine chandon in my opinion.

Fabulous, absolutely fabulous. We were first introduced to this wine by another customer of yours.....to whom we will be eternally grateful. It is a beautiful wine and we have since referred others who also rave about it. It is affordable, beautiful wine and since we drink bucketfuls it's wonderful that you choose to sell at your excellent price. Life is too short (especially in my case ...terminally ill - they tell me...HA!) for cheap wine, shite food and boring company. It's true, it's true. Thank you so much for your products, excellent, helpful staff, prompt and caring delivery - and marvellous after taste .... with NO hangover...a miracle...Keep up the good work. Cheers, good health, happiness, etc. 5+++++++
