CREMANT MIXED CASE
Alongside their world-class white and red wines, did you know that Burgundy produces excellent sparkling wines too? The Appellation, known as Crémant de Bourgogne, can be used for white or rosé sparkling wines (though if they are red then the term Bourgogne Mousseux is used). The sparkling wines of this region are not only superb in terms of quality, but they are also refreshingly reasonably priced too, compared to their more famous cousins to the North in Champagne. The Crémant Appellation covers around 400 communes from Chablis to Beaujolais (in other words, right across Burgundy), each area producing wines of rich variety and complexion.
Crémant is not just for celebrations but for enjoying with friends while sitting by the river watching the summer sun set or sipping while tending the grill. Enjoy this mixed case of Crémant that includes 4 bottles of each:
Louis Picamelot Crémant de Bourgogne ‘Les Reipes’ 2018
Visually, its color is bright. The bubble is a gush of finesse. The freshness of the citrus notes, the complexity of the Chardonnay and and the subtle balance between delicacy and aromatic strength make this a wine more appropriate to food than to aperitif. Elegant and generous, this Crémant will be perfect for meals.
Domaine Borgeot Crémant de Bourgogne
Don’t call it Champagne. You’ll get us in trouble. But this Borgeot Cremant de Bourgogne is produced in the very same way as those much more expensive wines that we are allowed to call Champagne. A well-made Cremant is a joy. A wine you can pull out for any occasion. And a wine which is made on a more human scale than the millions upon millions of bottles produced by our neighbors to the north. And that’s reason enough to celebrate!
Louis Picamelot Crémant de Bourgogne Rose 2018
Dynamic, with necklace of bubbles, the pink color is soft and intense, round but brisk. Carried by the delicacy of its bubbles, this Crémant wine hints at wild strawberry aromas and offers a seductive fullness. Ideal as an aperitif, it will also be a great match with your summer grilled food and your fruit desserts.
