This outstanding Crémant de Bourgogne is the color of burnished gold, hinting at its age. Toasted and buttery notes on the nose combine with cherries in eau-de-vie and a touch of honey. In the mouth, the Pinot Noir comes through strongly, with retro-olfaction aromas of kirsch and Morello cherries. The finish is fruity and long, a touch of bitterness as a prelude to an enchanting vinosity.
Authentic pairings: Filet mignon and roast poultry, or creamy cheeses.
The 2012 vintage was the result of a summer with optimal conditions, offering grapes with a quality worthy of a great year. The fruit is from the small plot of Dessus Les Vermots, located on a rocky limestone vein in the village of Savigny-Lès-Beaune.
This Crémant de Bourgogne Blanc de Noirs is the result of meticulous vinification and exceptional ageing: More than 20% of the cuvée was aged in oak barrels for six months.
