Sparkling pink in a dry, light and well balanced style, made mainly from pinot noir. A distinct note of raspberry
provides a fruity, summery appeal. Susy Atkins, Sunday Telegraph (UK), (04/07/2010)
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.
Colour and Bubbles
Pale pink in multiple nuances. The bubbles are fine and musical, the froth is plentiful and lasting.
The bouquet is youthful; great combination of fruitiness and freshness. An exciting fragrance of red fruits (wild strawberries and blackberries), hints of dried apricots, biscuits and butter pastries.
Light and airy in the mouth, it literally quenches the thirst. It ends with a finely-chiselled but long-lasting finish of great finesse.
Aperitif, seafood platters, lobster, Tarte Tartin, fresh fruit, chocolate deserts, chocolate coated strawberries.
Grape varietals: Pinot Noir and Gamay. Hand picked into small free-draining cases, pneumatically pressed as whole bunches, alcoholic and malolactic fermentations in stainless steel, temperature-controlled vats, bottle fermentation in strict respect of the traditional method and ageing in the darkened cellars of an underground quarry which has constant temperature (13°c) and hygrometry (85 %).
