Description

Toques et Clochers Limoux Chardonnay

The elevage of Toques et Clochers Limoux Chardonnay is in new oak, which confers complex flavours of melted butter, nuts, caramel and toast.

There is also a delicious lemony twist in the finish. Yet another wine where the accent is on terroir and minimal intervention. Ages wonderfully too.

We call the Toques et Clochers Limoux Chardonnay our… petit Meursault!

Watch out for the punt on this bottle, deep enough for a small Sommelier to disappear into.

The Toques et Clochers refers to an auction of exceptional barrels from the best parcelles on the Sunday before Easter every year.

A gala dinner is cooked by a celebrity chef (hence the Toque – the chef‘s traditional tall white hat) whilst the proceeds of the auction go to a different Limoux wine village each year – to be used for the restoration of its bell tower (the Clocher).

Toques et Clochers Limoux Chardonnay is produced by Sieur d’Arques, situated 25 km from Carcassonne.

One of the leading wine organizations in the Languedoc region, Aimery Sieur d’Arques combines the latest wine producing technology with a healthy respect for tradition.

Considered a pioneer in Languedoc Roussillon in terms of quality of production and wine-growing techniques, La Cave des Vignerons du Sieur d’Arques was one of the first wineries in the eighties to develop plot-based selection in its 2800 hectares of AOC vineyard.

Their terroir which benefits from the Mediterranean sun, tempered by their proximity to the Pyrénées and the influence of the Atlantic Ocean, combines the ideal conditions for producing great wines, like the Toques et Clochers Limoux Chardonnay.

Limoux is a relatively new appellation (created in 2003), for red and white wines from the area around the town of Limoux, in the Pyrenean foothills of Southern France.

Historically this area has been better known for its sparkling wines, which are produced and sold under the Blanquette de Limoux and Cremant de Limoux appellation titles, but it’s still wines are growing in reputation.

Dandelion Vineyards Enchanted Garden of the Eden Valley 2018

The appearance of Dandelion Vineyards Enchanted Garden of the Eden Valley Riesling foretells the pristine and unalloyed quality of its fruit. Classic aromatics of citrus zest, lemon foliage and hints of dragon fruit flowers are etched by a clear steely minerality. This is an attractively textural wine displaying the variety's intense purity. Bone dry, its structure and length is underpinned by austere acidity.

Domaine des Brosses Sancerre Quick View

Domaine des Brosses Sancerre 2018

The Girard family have 6 different parcels of Sancerre vineyards. Their hillside vineyards are located on classic clay and chalk soils, giving the grippy, mineral style expected of true Sancerre. Domaine des Brosses has used a machine harvester to collect the grapes since 1989. This is so that the Sauvignon Blanc is brought to the winery in the coolness of night-time, thus retaining the classic citrus and gooseberry aromas and flavours of Sancerre. Pale yellow in colour. The nose is fresh and full of hay, citrus and mineral notes. The palate is medium in body with crisp lemon acidity and an appealing creamy complexity alongside the ripe peach, elderflower and mineral flavours which last well on the long finish.

Peter Lehmann Margaret Semillon Quick View

Peter Lehmann Margaret Semillon 2012

While bottle ageing in the Tanunda cellars, the wine has developed an attractive vibrant green/gold colour. The bouquet shows hints of lemon flower together with some waxy, honeyed development so typical of great, aged Semillon. The grapes were picked early in the season to retain more natural acidity and the palate is dry with a zesty finish.

Domaine Gayda Flying Solo Grenache Blanc Viognier IGP Pays D'Oc Quick View

Domaine Gayda Flying Solo Grenache Blanc Viognier IGP Pays D’Oc 2017

Fresh, intensely floral, yet very fruity - apple blossom and lemon aromas give way to peach, orange and all manner of tropical fruit nuances, leading to an intense grapiness on the palate. This really is packed with flavour, combining a touch of richness with gorgeous acidity and a subtle herbiness. A beautifully made wine of real elegance - and brilliant value for money.
