Wines included in a case
Louis Bouillot Perle Noire Cremant de Bourgogne
The Louis Bouillot estate have been crafting Cremant de Bourgogne sparkling wines since 1877 and today combine their many years of winemaking experience with the latest technology and winemaking know-how to produce magnificent wines. Their stunning Perle de Nuit or “Pearl of the Night” is a delicate Blanc de Noir which shows off the versatile character of Burgundy’s noble Pinot Noir grape and the agility of the local Gamay grape.
The house carefully selects the grapes for this wine from prime sites in the Yonne, Couchois, Châtillonnais, and Côte d’Or regions. The grapes are pressed as soon as possible after being picked to create a pale juice which is then fermented according to the traditional method also used for Champagne. After the second fermentation stage is complete the wine is aged for a total of 24 months in the bottle to produce a multi-layered and harmonious sparkling wine.
The Perle de Nuit is a magnificent sparkling wine that makes an elegant alternative to Champagne for celebrations and special occasions. Ideal served as an aperitif, this sparkling wine also makes an ideal accompaniment to complex dishes like a rich tagine, chicken served with dried apricots and couscous, or spicy Asian dishes.
Allimant Laugner Cremant d'Alsace Rose
Domaine Allimant-Laugner was born out of the marriage of Mariette Allimant and René Laugner in 1965 which joined together two of Alsace’s top winemaking families. The estate boasts 12 hectares of prime vineyards and is currently run by three generations of the Allimant-Laugner family who have been making wine for at least 11 generations.
The family’s Cremant d’Alsace Rosé is a style which is growing in popularity and it’s made using the traditional method which is the same winemaking approach used for Champagne. The Pinot Noir grapes are gently pressed after a short maceration to create the gorgeous pale pink colour and the must is then fermented twice. The second fermentation takes place inside the bottle and the wine is aged on the lees to add extra complexity and body.
As soon as you pour yourself a glass you’ll notice the delicate stream of tiny bubbles and inviting aromas of fresh strawberries, cherries and white flowers. The first sip reveals a bright acidity, smooth mousse from the bubbles, and enticing red berry flavours with a very clean and pure finish. The vibrant character of this Cremant makes it ideal as an aperitif or served alongside spicy Asian cuisine or fresh seafood.
Sieur d'Arques Premiere Bulle Brut
Sparkling wines have been made in this corner of the Languedoc close to the foothills of the Pyrenees ever since 1531 when monks at the nearby Abbey of Saint Hilaire created the very first sparkling wine in the world. Today one of the region’s most respected producers is the Sieur d’Arques cooperative which was founded in 1946 by several passionate local winemakers.
As is traditional for sparkling wines from the Limoux, this dry bubbly has a base of Chardonnay grapes sourced from the cooperative’s exceptional calcareous vineyards which add a certain finesse and delicacy to the wine. They also add a smaller amount of Chenin Blanc as well as a dash of the little-known indigenous Mauzac grape to add an aromatic character to the blend.
Just like Champagne, this sparkling wine is made using the traditional method whereby the wine undergoes a second fermentation in the bottle with the yeast. The wine is then left to enjoy an extended beauty sleep of 18 months to add a generous, rounded texture and subtle notes of toast, nuts and brioche to the wine. This helps to create an elegant sparkling wine which is ideal for celebrating special occasions or simply enjoying alongside a simple summer salad.
Saint Hilaire Blanquette de Limoux
The famous story of Blanquette de Limoux dates back to 1531 when the monks of the Abbey of Saint Hilaire in the Languedoc made the world’s very first sparkling wine. Four centuries later a handful of local winemakers banded together to create their own enterprise, the Sieur d’Arques cooperative, which is dedicated to producing top quality sparkling wines as well as still red and white wines made with traditional local grape varieties.
Their classic Blanquette de Limoux is made using Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc and the little-known aromatic Mauzac grape which is indigenous to the region and must be used in all Blanquette wines. Sieur d’Arques vinifies each of the varieties separately before deciding on the exact composition of the blend. The wine is then bottled and a second fermentation takes place inside the bottle to create the bubbles in the wine. After nine months this process is complete and the bottles are disgorged and released to the market.
The result is a refreshing dry sparkling wine with delicate aromas of apples, white peaches, flowers and freshly-cut grass. On the palate the bubbles are fine and soft and the rich fruity flavours are balanced by a crisp acidity that invites you to take another sip. It’s a perfect wine to drink on a hot summer’s day as an aperitif or to serve alongside creamy dishes like a gorgonzola risotto or elegant tarte tatin.
Antech Emotion Cremant de Limoux Rose 2018
Crafted using the same traditional method that is used to make Champagne, this gorgeous vintage Cremant de Limoux is an excellent choice for enjoying as an aperitif at casual family gatherings. The Antech family have been producing Cremant de Limoux for six generations. Operations are currently in the capable hands of brothers Georges and Roger along with Georges’ daughter Francoise who is widely regarded as one of France’s most talented female winemaker.
Composed of Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Mauzac, and Pinot Noir grapes, this vibrant Cremant is matured on the lees for a total of 18 months to add complexity and richness to the finished wine. To add a subtle hint of sweetness to balance the intense freshness of the wine, the Antechs add a modest dosage of 8 grams per litre when the wines are disgorged.
On the nose there are delicate aromas of lemon zest, crushed red berries and rose petals, while the first sip reveals a smooth, persistent mousse and bright citrus notes. The vibrancy and elegance of this wine makes it an ideal aperitif and partner for dishes like spicy Asian curries, pan-seared salmon or tuna steaks, or decadent pasta dishes.
Grande Cuvee 1531 Cremant de Limoux Rose Brut
The Sieur d’Arques cooperative was created in 1946 by a group of local winemakers who wanted to pool their expertise and resources to create the best possible wines from their exceptional vines. Their Grand Cuvee 1531 is named after the famous year when the monks of the nearby Abbey of Saint Hilaire transformed the region’s winemaking traditions by making the world’s very first sparkling wine in their cellars.
Today the cooperative focuses on producing delicious sparkling and still red and white wines using local grape varieties. This Grand Cuvee Cremant de Limoux is a dry rosé sparkling wine which is made from Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc as well as a touch of Pinot Noir to give the gorgeous subtle pink hue.
Enticing aromas of crushed raspberries, strawberries and ripe peaches characterise the nose, while the palate offers a refreshing acidity, smooth bubbles and delicious berry flavours. Cremant de Limoux is made according to the traditional method which is the same process used for making Champagne. After a first fermentation the wine is bottled and a second fermentation takes place in the bottle to create the bubbles. The wine is then aged for 12 months in the bottle with the yeast cells which helps to give a well-rounded texture and delicious hints of pastry and toasted nuts.
