Bourgogne Mousseux Rouge | Tempting and voluptuous

Perle de Saint Georges provides an echo of the first Burgundy sparkling wines. In 1815, a red bubbly appeared, made according to the champenoise method from Pinot Noir harvested on the Côte de Nuits. Nowadays, this tradition that began more than two centuries ago is embodied by the Crémant de Bourgogne appellation, which was created in 1975. This cuvée, a nod to the red bubbly of a bygone age, is made in a limited edition of 1,200 bottles.

A wine hailing from the heart of the vineyards of Nuits-Saint-Georges and the region’s celebrated Pinot Noir grapes. Perle de Saint Georges is an original and charming wine with a garnet color tinged with violet. The nose has fine aromas of cherries in eau de vie and jam. The rounded mouth reveals sweet and smoky notes over balanced, well-integrated tannins. Its extra dry dosage allows it to respect the flavors imparted by the terroir.

Surprising combinations: Take a risk on pairing it with grilled meats or seasonal fruit tarts.

The grapes come from plots in the Nuits-Saint-Georges appellation. This wine is made according to the traditional method, whilst respecting the specifications of the AOC Bourgogne Mousseux Rouge. Harvesting was done by hand, with long maceration and temperature-controlled fermentation. The malolactic fermentation was allowed to occur naturally. Each bottle has spent a minimum of 20 months on laths before final corking.
