Crémant de Bourgogne Extra-Brut | Power and vigor

A second vintage for this exceptional and remarkable cuvée that illustrates Louis Bouillot’s expertise in the art of blending. The successful fusion of six village plots, selected for their powerful white wines (Les Trois Saints) and their expressive reds (Dessus les Vermots and Grands Rayes-Blanc) with, for this version, an additional touch of Chablis minerality from the Serein Valley. This 2007 vintage is a complex, powerful wine, that offers infinite impressions on the tongue for ecstasy in the mouth!

A golden color with tinges of amber and a creamy, abundant foam. The nose is complex with a lovely bouquet recalling notes of honey, walnut, and certain fruits in alcohol. On the finish, it offers toasted and slightly oaky notes with aromas of ripe pear. In the mouth, the attack is lively and forthright, with magistral vinosity and richness carried through to a long finish.

Delicious pairings:
A velouté of mushrooms, veal scallops, and a hard cheese like a Comté aged for 24 months.

The 2007 vintage was a very sunny one where ripening was quick to happen. It produced ripe and concentrated grapes with which to compose this exceptional cuvée. Les Villages 2007 is the fruit of some painstaking work: The perfect balance of Burgundy’s two flagship varietals of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, enhanced by particularly long ageing (including more than 12 years on laths), with six months in oak and an extra-brut dosage to allow these exceptional terroirs to shine through.

In praise of time

Here the very illustrious native grape varieties, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, are expressed in equal proportions.
The vines were selected for their ability to produce powerful, lively, mineral Chardonnays as well as full-bodied, structured and expressive Pinot Noirs.
The whites from the three "holy" villages are enriched for this new version by the mineral contribution of the Chablis terroir.

The reds come from the Côte d'Or, Gevrey-Chambertin in the Côte de Nuits, famous for its grands crus, and Savigny-Lès-Beaune, in the Côte de Beaune.

The perfect balance of the two grape varieties is achieved, with a patina after an immensely long ageing period of 12 and a half years, with one third aged in oak barrels where, for 8 months, they learn elegance.

The dosage is lowered to extra-brut to allow the exceptional nature of these mixed origins to shine through.

This 2007 is a complex wine, powerful and still fresh on the palate, with the body of an ecstatic cuvée!
And rare, since only 3,000 bottles were produced.

Yellow gold with light amber glints, creamy, abundant bubbles.
A mature, complex initial nose with notes of honey, walnuts and a hint of kirsch.
On aeration, notes of toast, light oakiness and soft pear emerge.
On the palate, the wine remains fresh for its age. The effervescence is well integrated. Straightforward acidity. Round, powerful, long finish.
The same notes of toast, honey and nuts such as walnut, hazelnut and a hint of almond on the finish.
A complex wine with a robust palate. Despite its age, it remains fresh on the palate with lots of power.
It has reached its peak and is ready for your enjoyment!
