Crémant de Bourgogne Brut Nature | Rounded and lively

This wine is the perfect illustration of Louis Bouillot’s skill at blending, since it is a balanced combination of the three Grands Terroirs cuvées: Les Trois Saints, Dessus les Vermots, and Les Grands Rayes-Blancs. Complex and lively, this great Crémant de Bourgogne charms with its rounded character. Its rich nose and full, structured mouth make for a very harmonious drinking experience.

A golden-yellow color with a delicate bead. The complex nose has a pleasant bouquet suggesting quince and citrus, followed by notes of fruit in eau de vie, with a slightly toasted finish. The attack is lively and forthright, the vinosity and depth of Les Villages 2004 giving it a nice length.

Tantalizing combinations:
 Seafood for a salty zing, fish in sauce or white meat for a softer pairing, or why not mature cheese accompanied by fresh figs for a powerful punch?

Les Villages 2004 is an exceptional wine, the fruit of some painstaking work carried out with passion. It stems from a subtle marriage of wines from the plots of Dessus les Vermots in Savigny-Lès-Beaune, Les Grands Rayes-Blanc in Gevrey-Chambertin, and from Saint-Aubin, Saint-Vérand and Saint-Romain, all in Burgundy.
After a summer in 2004 notable for rain and unusually cool weather, the Indian summer allowed the grapes to attain lovely ripeness. A quarter of the base wines destined for this cuvée were aged in oak barrels. The bottled wine was then aged quietly for nine long years.
