Crémant de Bourgogne, Terroirs Sélectionnés | Minerality and high-breeding

Perle de Molesme is sober and powerful, like the Cistercian order whose stamp it bears. It owes its name to the Benedictine monk Robert de Molesme, who left the abbey of Molesme in 1098 to found a new monastic order in Cîteaux. 
This northerly terroir offers a wine that is both powerful and mineral, with a unique personality. This is because it is mainly made from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes grown in our vineyards in the emblematic village of Molesme in the Châtillonnais region, where the Côte d’Or department meets the Aube.




A clear golden yellow, with a tinge of green. The nose suggests honey accompanied by white blossom, opening onto notes of redcurrants. In the mouth, the attack is lively and crisp. This sumptuous Crémant de Bourgogne is underscored with a citrus touch. The finish is long, ending on a lovely peak of vivacity, the sign of a wine for ageing.

Some authentic unions: An ideal accompaniment for traditional country dishes like roast pork and cabbage, pork stew, or chicken in Époisses sauce.


The grapes come mainly from Louis Bouillot’s vineyards in Molesme in the Châtillonnais, on the border between the north of Burgundy and the south of the Champagne region. The Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vines grow on slopes with an ideal southeast orientation. The soil, microclimate, and winemaking techniques all contribute to making lively, fruity wines, with their own special excellence. Gentle pressing and separate handling of the must is followed by cold settling and fermentation, which preserves the personality of Perle de Molesme, before being honed by 12 months’ ageing.
