Our vintage Crémants Les Grands Terroirs are decanted and served in Baccarat crystal glasses specially designed to exalt the finesse of the bubbles and enhance the aromas. The exclusive sphere-shaped decanter has been designed to concentrate the aromas and avoid excessive oxygenation. Each sip is more delicate and the wine is more expressive, with the bubbles retaining all their finesse.

This exclusive service highlights the characteristics of exceptional Crémants de Bourgogne from prestigious appellations: Les Grands Terroirs de Louis Bouillot

Did you say decant?

Some Crémants de Bourgogne can be enhanced by decanting

 

It is surprising and rather unusual to decant a sparkling wine! And yet, as early as the 18th century, women used to cassaient la bulle (“burst the bubbles”) with a small ivory frother. This operation must be carried out with delicacy so as not to risk evaporating the spirit of the wine created by the slow maturing process that characterizes our Grands Terroirs. The service of fine Crémants must be carried out in the correct manner.
