The History of the Languedoc vineyard dates back to the 5th century BC when the Greeks first introduced grape vines and their cultural practices. It was in 1531, one century before Dom Pérignon, that wines from Limoux stepped onto the world stage thanks to Benedictine nuns from the St Hilaire Abbey, a neighboring village, who created the first sparkling wine in the world: La Blanquette de Limoux.
The earliest written references to Blanquette de Limoux can be traced back to the lord of the region, “le Sieur d’Arques” who swigged down “flasks of Blanquette” to celebrate his victories. Four centuries later, in 1946, the founding winemakers of our winery christened their wine, Sieur d’Arques.
This Crémant de Limoux is sourced from the oldest sparkling wine region in the world which continues to produce these amazingly flavorsome, yet affordable sparkling wines. The Sieur d’Arques Aimery Grand Cuvée 1531 is a multiple award winner, picking up no less than 8 gold medals over the past couple of years.
