The seductive jewel-like pink hue of this elegant bubbly immediately catches the eye, while the nose offers tempting aromas of peaches, nectarines and hints of toast and brioche which carry through onto the palate. The first sip reveals silky smooth bubbles, refreshing acidity levels and a long, clean finish. This is an easy-going, dry Cremant which is ideal to enjoy as an aperitif or to serve alongside pan-fried fish, fresh seafood or simply a generous platter of French cheeses.
Like most Cremant de Limoux wines, the base of this wine is Chardonnay which is grown on the Sieur d’Arques’ exceptional chalky vineyards close to the foothills of the Pyrenees. This helps to create an elegant, refined sparkling wine which displays a subtle chalky minerality on the palate. The winemakers also add a smaller amount of Chenin Blanc as well as a dash of Pinot Noir which gives the wine its distinctive hue.
The Sieur d’Arques cooperative make this wine according to the traditional method which is the same process used to create Champagne. The wine undergoes a second fermentation in the bottle and it is then left to age with the lees for 12 months which helps to create a rich, well-rounded texture and gentle notes of pastries, nuts and freshly-baked bread.
