Your Sommelier is very keen on Crémant de Bourgogne for the following reasons: They are sparkling wines made with the same traditional method and the same grapes as in Champagne, and are generally much better than an average Champagne, for a fraction of the price. This Crémant is elaborated with 2 thirds of Pinot Noir to give the structure and the freshness to the wine, and a third of Chardonnay for its aromas and the delicate small bubbles it creates. A very elegant sparkling from Burgundy, just add a couple of bottles to your order, you will not be disappointed!

This cuvée is an authentic medium-bodied red showing aroma of raspberry, cherry and liquorice.. A great pick to start going up in the range of red Burgundies!

Multiple and complex aromas (citrus, exotic fruit, hint of orange) which are progressively replaced by a long, buttery and toasted finish with notes of nuts and vanilla.

Next to Meursault, Chassagne Montrachet is also one of the star appellations of the Côte de Beaune, and this Premier Cru shows an unbelievable complexity. We loved this fresh, round and generous high-end cuvée showing elegant minerality, multiple aromas (ripe pear, honey, honeysuckle, hazelnut...) and a toasty, buttery finish. A very impressive "wow"...
