"The selection for this sparkler — Crémant de Bourgogne — comes from vineyards situated south of Burgundy. The vineyard soils are composed of limestone, clay, and pebbles and are situated in the cooler areas. The grapes are hand-picked at the early stage of the harvest in order to preserve the mineral character and the acidity. These elements will allow freshness and crispy aromas once bottled. The word 'Crémant' was originally used in reference to 'Champagne demi-mousse' which is a lower-pressured Champagne. From the Chardonnay grapes this sparkler allies freshness, body, and smoothness. The Crémant Brut is dry and offers fine bubbles (1.5 million in 30 minutes — we counted them but you do not have to believe us for this!), hints of flowers at the nose, crisp and fruity on the palate. It is a great classic for all festive occasions." —winemaker
Wine Anthology Team Review-An outstanding bottle for the money. Drinks at twice the price! Has crisp chardonnay flavors of apples and white fruit. It's juicy and full bodied, with fine floral details and citrus spice keeping it buoyant into a long finish. This wine starts out slowly in it's aromas before it shows up with it's excellent core fruit flavors. Worth every penny and more! Enjoy!
