Our oenologists' opinion
Its light straw color offers an exuberant nose with finely woody notes, yellow fruits and almond. On the palate, this wine is balanced, frank and open with a tense and coated finish.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Do you know ?
There are over 690 cooperative wineries and unions in France. Together, the 84000 winegrowers produce 39% of A.O.C wines (French appellation wines), 71% of Vins de Pays (local wines) and export over a third of their production abroad. Acting as a collective force, those cooperatives allow winegrowers to focus on their vineyards without directly having to take care of the winemaking process and the commercialization of their wines.
Domain and appellation
Cave des Vignerons du Sieur d’Arques
Located in Limoux near Carcassonne, this cooperative is a major player in the wine of Languedoc, combining technical know-how and tradition. Regarded as a leader in the region in terms of quality of production and wine-making techniques, in the 1980s the Cave des Vignerons du Sieur d’Arques was able to expand its parcel selection to 2800 hectares of vineyards in Appellation of Controlled Origin.
Available in 4 terroirs (Autan, Méditéranéen, Océanique et Haute-Vallée), "Toques et Clochers" has represented the excellence of the Sieur d'Arques crus and winemakers since 1990.
