Never the same, nor altogether different...

"Perle Rare ranges in amplitude in terms of flavour, structure and balance. Its richness comes from the ageing process which enhances it and gives it strength.”

The four pillars of a sophisticated style for a Crémant de Bourgogne

Grape varieties
The alliance of four Burgundy grapes: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Aligoté and Gamay.

The rare cuvée is made exclusively with the vintage’s best wines.

Each year the divine proportion of half white and half red is adjusted in the quest for balance.
The terroirs of Burgundy (Côte d'Or, Châtillonnais, Couchois, Mâconnais and Beaujolais) complement each other.

Finally, time seals this complex blend. We choose our wines when they are young, still closed, and can stand the test of time! Over two years, they will gradually open up with notes of toast and a hint of minerality.

All our Perle Rares are aged for a minimum of two years and thus classified as "Eminent".

Gastronomic pairings

As an aperitif, soft textures go well: olive cake, flaked salmon, cheese on cocktail sticks, rillettes.
Its density allows it to be matched with flavours that require acidity, such as oysters with vinegar and shallots.

It is also an excellent accompaniment for dishes with a sauce, complementing them with its liveliness, or for the melt-in-the-mouth texture of lightly seared tuna. Or even delicate fish such as grilled sea bass. And why not also with poultry or creamy cheeses, such as Cîteaux, or Chaource.


Like little drops of heaven captivating the senses!

The 2020 vintage was characterised by mild, dry weather, conducive to early ripening and good concentration. This led to us starting our harvest on 18 August! Sunny, dry weather prevailed throughout the spring, but in the summer water stress stalled the maturing process and the vines waited for better conditions – or rather, wetter weather! The small, dense grapes were, of course, very healthy, full of sugar and beautifully ripe, promising excellent substance.

While this is virtually a 50/50 black and white blend, the white prevails on the palate, initially vigorous, with the Aligoté note softening on the finish. Wine aficionados know what vinous wine stands for. If we say clean, we all grasp the nuance.

As for the flurry of aromas, they are transported by the freshness of the wine! First, floral notes, with the sweetness of honeysuckle and intensely luscious lilies! Next, fruity notes, with white peach accented by a zest of lemon. The mouth, delivering a touch of apple, is perfectly in tune.

This fresh, elegant, acidulous yet round and structured vintage Crémant requires a low dosage of just 6 g/L for maximum pleasure.
