Sparkling Wine. Delicate bubbles, great acidity and a hint of sweetness. Notes of acacia honey and soft toasted hazelnut. On the palate with flavors of green apple and citrus fruits. Best paired with salmon or any fresh fish dishes.
Did you know that the world’s first sparkling wine was made in Limoux? Let’s give them a round of applause because what would this world be without that bubbling pleasure?
In 1990 the AOC Crémant de Limoux was born and with it the new label of the house: “Sieur D’Arques Aimery Crémant de Limoux Brut” made from the traditional method or “Champenoise” method and with a higher percentage of Chardonnay grapes.
Sieur D’Arques is the combination of passionate and hard-working people, with dreams, and a love of bubbles, and as a result, they produce magnificent wines. Sieur D’Arques has been producing first-rate Sparkling wines since 1946, located just 15 miles from one of the most charming cities in France and Europe, Carcassonne. The area is filled with historic towers and castles that take us back to Gallo-Roman times. In addition, they have a spectacular terroir, a Mediterranean climate, and clay-limestone soils that are ideal for sparkling wine production.
Besides having an ambitious and successful oenological project, they are also the organizers of one of the most important events in the world of wine: Toques & Cloches, one of the most important and largest wine auctions in France. Many gastronomic celebrities have attended this event: 3 star-Michelin chefs like Alain Ducasse, Paul Bocuse, Joël Robuchon, Alain Passard, and Sommeliers like Jean Frambourt and Andréas Larsson, to name a few.
Sieur D’Arques is committed socially, environmentally, and economically to producing quality wine with little intervention while maintaining sustainable practices (certified with ISO). Good people and good wines, what else does the world need?

@LJeAYsy4LoqxEC I ordered the NV in a previous sale and you are not going find much better at this price point. It was dry and on the creamy side of sparkling wine. Good acidity too. I’m picking up a six pack.
@kookie00@LJeAYsy4LoqxEC agree on the 6pk but I’m still floating on a post-Bday high with a work meeting that will take me into the next 2hrs…
cyber security is job security but horrible on having a life!
I have ordered Aimrey cases twice before (April 23rd and May 26th mystery offer) and have always been pleased.
The varietal mix is slightly different from previous offerings (previous: 65% Chardonnay, 25% Chenin, 10% Pinot Noir; this offering: 60% Chardonnay, 30% Chenin Blanc, 10% Pinot Noir), but I don’t think that will make much of a difference. I trust the wine makers judgement on this. After all wine is a natural product and variability and slight adjustments to maintain the overall quality are to be expected.
I enjoy sparkling wines a lot, and this one is a good choice at a favorable price point.
Has anyone in Florida had luck with the 2-day shipping? I really don’t want to buy cooked wine, but I really would like to buy a case of this. I’m concerned that just 6 hours in a hot truck will be enough to damage the wine. And that’s IF they actually deliver in 2 days. I’ve often had my 2-day shipments delayed by a day or two.
My apologies. We’re in the midst of moving households, and we just didn’t get to the lab rat bottle in time. And now it’s sold out.
For the record, straw yellow in color, a hint of sweetness, and nice acidity (I hate flabby sparkling wines). The bubblies are more of a mousse than bigger bubbles, and that’s a good thing. I suspect this has had some ageing, in that we have that hint of, I don’t know, maderization? That may also explain a bit of the straw yellow color. But that’s not a bad thing here; perhaps I need better Champaign taste training (it’s not like Joy’s offerings).
For those of us who waited around all day, checking back for “the Rat” because we were unsure of the product? needed a push, whatever, apology accepted.
BUT isn’t the whole idea when you signed up is to drop what you’re doing and report back (maybe just fake it) so we have another clue?!
You got a free bottle and we got…well…it did sell out regardless.
Got mine today. Can’t wait to try it. Beautiful bottle, will make great gifts and great for bringing to parties. Kind of tough to get out of the foam container. Be patient, rock back and forth while pulling; it will come out in a few seconds. Use a little pixie dust if you have it. You have to believe in your heart that you can get it out.
