Winery notes (NV)
"Produced by the traditional method. When the harvests arrive, we press the grapes slowly using our pneumatic wine presses. Only the first presses are used to produce our wines. Malolactic fermentation takes place in our 100% stainless steel vats. Secondary fermentation, in the bottle (according to the traditional method), is carried out by adding yeasts and sugar. This is followed by 18 months of ageing on lees in our temperature-controlled cellars.

This Crémant de Bourgogne displays a pale yellow colour with slightly golden highlights. Its fresh nose delivers floral and fruity notes of mirabelle plums, peaches and lemons on a base of vanilla and fresh almonds. In the mouth, the attack is supple and elegant, and the perfect acidity enhances this wine's great freshness."
Number 1 & 5 Stars Cuisine Other Sparkling Tasting 2014 (NV)
"A real surprise packet from France, this well-made chardonnay sparkling wine opens with a mature, complex nose that combines candied peel, lanolin, toast and a whisper of nutty aldehyde. It’s powerful, rich and yeasty, and the palate shows lovely flow and depth of flavour, enhanced by perfectly measured dosage to give a thread of sweetness. A wine of great length and drive to suit food like terrines and pâtés. 

Good Crémant de Bourgogne is a great buy if you want some of Champagne’s panache without the Champagne price tag. This chardonnay-based example comes from vineyards in the Côte Chalonnaise, to the south of Burgundy’s quality heartland, and it’s made at André Delorme’s impressive cellars in Rully, an area perhaps better known in export markets for chardonnay table wine than for fizz. André Delorme was founded in 1942, but Crémant de Bourgogne’s history goes back to the early 19th century."

The style wasn’t given its own Appellation Contrôleé until 1975, officially recognising and defining its qualities. Winemaking faithfully follows the traditional method of bottle fermentation pioneered in Champagne, and the grapes used are the same – chardonnay and pinot noir. It’s a combination with a real echo of Champagne about it, a fact well illustrated by this delicious top sparkling wine.
