Crémant de Bourgogne Blanc de Blancs | Delicacy and expansiveness

This cuvée brings together three appellations in which the varietal notes vie to interpret their respective terroir, blending their personality into an elegant whole. Its name is inspired by the three “saint” villages on the Côte de Beaune and the Mâconnais where the grapes are grown: Saint-Aubin, Saint-Romain, and Saint-Vérand. It is a Crémant de Bourgogne with aromatic complexity for refined drinking.

A crystalline pale gold, this sparkling wine has great aromatic complexity on the nose, which is at first buttery before opening onto notes of citrus, white blossom, acacia honey, and vanilla. In the mouth, it is rounded and vinous, with pleasant length. This Crémant de Bourgogne Blanc de Blancs made exclusively from Chardonnay makes a distinguished accompaniment to gastronomic cuisine, whether traditional or modern.

Elegant combinations: Foie gras, ravioli with scallops, an avocado and salmon salad, or even gingerbread.

Despite unpredictable weather conditions, the 2006 vintage was exceptional. Winter was long and cold, followed by a changeable spring and a cool, rainy summer. But the fine September weather allowed the Chardonnay grapes to reach ideal maturity. The fruit was grown on limestone marl interspersed with strips of clay, giving it a fresh, vinous character. A proportion was aged in oak barrels, before a further five years in the bottle, necessary for it to develop its full aromatic complexity.
