The history of the Languedoc vineyards dates back to the fifth century BC, when the Greeks introduced the vine and its cultivation techniques. But it wasn’t until 1531 that the Benedictine monks of the St Hilaire Abbey, a village close to Limoux, produced the first sparkling wine in the world… The World’s first Sparkling Wine was born. Seduced by this sparkling wine, a local lord, the Sieur d'Arques got into the habit of quaffing "Flascons" of Blanquette to celebrate his victories. Four centuries later, in 1946, inspired by this historical anecdote, the winery’s founders took on the name of Sieur d'Arques. Since that day, the company has perpetuated the work of its remarkable artisans in a true desire to share their ancestral know-how with all lovers of exceptional wines.

Situated at the crossroads between two climatic influences, the Limoux terroir is rich in diversity. The enologists and winemakers of Sieur d’Arques, pioneers in plot-based terroir selection, have taken the full measure of this invaluable diversity. For over twenty years, they have been committed to an innovative, quality-focused approach highlighting four major terroirs and selecting only those plots for which the microclimates, soils, topographies and elevations are suited to the production of healthy, ripe grapes. Hence, to the east, the Mediterranean influence produces a dry, hot climate. To the west, the temperate climate is due to the influence of the Atlantic, which guarantees both optimal sun and enough rain all year. In the center of the appellation, the two influences merge, while a cooler climate dominates in the south closer to the Pyrénées. To this must be added the mainly limestone clay soil and vineyards spread out from 200 to 500 meters elevation. These are the essential characteristics of a land full of promise ideal for crafting innovative wines. Les Vignerons du Sieur d’Arques have optimized the exceptional diversity of their 2800 hectares of vineyard.

Limoux

A.O.C. Limoux

Limoux is best known for its sparkling wine, Blanquette de Limoux. This is reputed to be the oldest sparkling wine in France and dates back to 1531 when Benedictine monks from Saint Hilaire Abbey discovered that the wine they had laid down had fermented and formed bubbles. This was the beginning of Limoux’s bubbly - the Blanquette de Limoux which was the first AOC to be created in the Languedoc area. The process (the locals say) was stolen by Dom Perignon who went on to create ‘champagne‘. however the Limoux sparkling wine is a very high quality champagne substitute and Crémant, which was developed in 1990, has a top class reputation. Now a prestigious event attracting buyers from all over the world, “Toques & Clochers” puts up for auction the most promising barrels of AOC Limoux. A share of the proceeds are then used to finance the renovation of bell towers in surrounding villages. Every year the auction is hosted by one of France’s great chefs popularly referred to as a “Toques”, the traditional white chef’s hat....


Blanquette de Limoux

Blanquette de Limoux,  Crémant de Limoux, Blanquette Méthode Ancestrale

History tells us that Blanquette de Limoux, the world's first sparkling wine, dates as far back as 1531. At the time, the monks of the Benedictine abbey of Saint-Hilaire, near Limoux, were producing a somewhat unusual white wine in their cellars. Inside its glass flask, with a cork top - very rare for wines at this time - it acquired a natural sparkle. This was the forefather of the brut which is tasted today at the world's most prestigious tables. Since they first started cultivating vines, the growers of Limoux have aimed at maintaining the originality of the Blanquette de Limoux growth and developing its quality. The region's surrounding hills protect it from the extremes of the Mediterranean and Atlantic climates, with the area enjoying a microclimate particularly suitable for making quality white wine. The vines classified in the appellation are always planted at the top of southern-facing slopes, giving the best exposure. The soil here is shallow and sparse, full of chalk and stone....
