Sieur d’Arques, Premiere Bulle, Blanquette de Limoux AOP
Grapes are exclusively picked by hand after a selection of the best vineyards for outstanding quality of their soil and sub-soil. After a first fermentation in stainless steel tank, the « prise de mousse » or second fermentation occurs in bottle, before a period of ageing on lees lasting 15 months.
Color: Pale-yellow in color with hints of green. Effervescence is fine and lingering with a delicate foam.
Nose: A lot of freshness through notes of white flowers and white fleshed-fruit aromas.
Palate: Dried fruit notes give attractive vivacity and unctuousness to the palate. The wine develops grilled and toasted aromas on the finish.
Either as an aperitif or during a diner, the freshness and the fruitiness of this Blanquette will be ideally paired with variety of food, from salty to sweet dishes.
