Whilst Champagne gets all the plaudits, Cremant de Bourgogne is where the bargains lie. Produced in Morey St Denis, this clever sparkling shows much of the charm of a proper Champagne yet without the Champenoise pricetag, still built with that same dry length and persistent bead to make for a satisfying French bubbly.
A classically elegant sparkling nose – fresh citrus aromas mingling with yeasty, toasted notes. The palate is pure and crisp with a richness of up-front flavour courtesy of the Pinot Meunier. The finish is elegant and lively, riding a long mineral backbone.
