This is for the love a the finer things: lovely French Bubbly. From one of Burgundy's most iconic names - whom is also the genius behind Raymond, DeLoach and more, it's a reason to celebrate.
- The word Crémant describes a sparkling wine made outside of region of Champagne but in the same, quality-conscious “méthode traditionnelle.” As in the fine wines of Champagne, this Crémant underwent a secondary fermentation in the bottle, which creates a fine, elegant bead of tiny bubbles.
- The Boisset family—one of Burgundy’s great names—makes this sparkler from grapes grown by Domaine Chauvenet and vinified at Boisett’s state-of-the-art sparkling wine facility in the heart of Burgundy.
- Domaine Chauvenet is has been passed from father to son—and most recently daughter--for four generations.
- French law for Crémant de Bourgogne stipulates aging in bottle no less than nine months, which is just long enough for the development of personality without losing any of this bubbly’s freshness.
Berry and bubbles along with a creamy, addictive bead of fine, Champagne-like froth define this sparkling rosé made from 100% Burgundy-grown Pinot Noir.
In Burgundy, sparkling wine is called Crémant de Bourgogne. It’s made just as painstakingly as the finest of Champagnes (aka Méthode Traditionnelle) and from the same grapes, too. The difference lies in its price point and—less auspiciously—in its availability. Traditionally, Crémant de Bourgogne was guzzled down locally by Burgundians who know a thing or two about fine wine. Finally, they are popping up (and frothing up, too) in the U.S. This particular pink sparkler should have NV Rosé Champagnes likes Laurent-Perrier and Billecart-Salmon very very worried.
This Brut is tank-fermented and aged for at least four months to create a sparkler with fresh, fruity aromas and extremely fine bubbles. Pale gold color with elegant, fine bubbles. Fresh and fruity with undertones of toast and honey. Verywell-balanced and just a delight to drink.
Perfect alongside seafood starters, sushi, mixed berry tart, on a Sunday fternoon.
