Winery Tasting Notes
Sparkling wines designated Crémant are produced using the traditional method, and have to fulfill strict production criteria.
Traditional Method or Method Champenois is based on the same double fermentation process as all Champagnes are made. After first alcoholic fermentation where natural sugar is transformed into alcohol, such a wine is bottled with additional sugar and natural yeasts which provoke a second fermentation into the bottle thus transforming them in those loving bubbles. Such a process takes about 13 months to complete in the underground caves of Burgundy where the constant 12 degrees Celsius temperature and 85% humidity guarantee best result.

Soleil Cremant de Bourgogne is even mix of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay and made using “Method Traditionnelle” bottle fermentation. Only the finest, first run juice following whole bunch pressing is used. 50% of the blend undergoes malolactic fermentation before 12 months bottle fermentation on lees .
