Save $67 on this fresh, crisp and tasty sparkler with multiple 90 point ratings, the Aimery 1531 Cremant de Limoux Brut.
The companion to our previous Blanquette de Limoux deal, here's your highly discounted chance to try a more modernly styled Cremant de Limoux!
Today's Insider Deal for the bubbly lovers offers a great alternative to much more expensive sparkling wines.
That alternative is Cremant de Limoux. These wines come from high, cool vineyards around the town of Limoux in the Pyrenean foothills of the Languedoc region.
Unlike our previous Blanquette de Limoux Insider Deal, which was made primarily made from Mauzac with small amounts of Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc, the script is flipped here. Cremant de Limoux instead features Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc with small amounts of Mauzac in a more modern style.
All the sparkling wines here are made in the traditional method with secondary fermentation happening in the bottle, just like Champagne. And while there's no definitive proof, the region claims to have started using this method even before Champagne itself!
Lacking the name recognition of Champagne (but also the huge mark-ups), these wines can be hard to find. Today we've got a highly discounted chance to give an excellent example of Cremant de Limoux a try.
Through today's Insider Deal you can get 6 bottles of the Aimery 1531 Cremant de Limoux Brut for just $71.99 ($12 a bottle) plus $5 for shipping.
This wine normally retails for $20 or more which means you're saving 43% on the wine. Factor in the additional savings from our $5 shipping and your savings go up to 47%, or $67.

The non-vintage Aimery 1531 Cremant de Limoux Brut is 55% Chardonnay, 35% Chenin Blanc and 10% Mauzac from Crémant de Limoux, Languedoc-Roussillon, France. The wine has 7 g/L of residual sugar.
From the winery:
1531 - The first sparkling wine. 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 Aimery 1531 Cremant de Limoux Brut begins with a very pleasing aroma of white peach, pear, a little fresh baked bread and a touch of a floral note.
Tasting the wine reveals it to be fresh, crisp and loaded with fine bubbles. This is quite the palate cleanser! You can definitely taste the much higher proportions of Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc in this one compared to the Blanquette de Limoux we previously offered. In the mouth it features similar flavors to the nose with a little lemon, lime and other citrus plus melon and a hint of honey.
It ends crisp, dry and even a bit savory on the long finish. Tasty stuff!
