J.J. Vincent Cremant de Bourgogne
Tasted and loved by our staff, this French sparkling wine is an elegant, delicious aperitif for any occasion, and especially on Easter Sunday. Fifth generation winemaker Antoine Vincent, from Château Fuissé and J.J. Vincent, has made the selection for this sparkler – Crémant de Bourgogne - from vineyards situated south of Burgundy. The vineyard soils are composed of limestone, clay and pebbles and are situated in the cooler areas to maintain the freshness of the wine, as they would in the cool climate Champagne region. The grapes are hand-picked at the early stage of the harvest to preserve the mineral character, clean fruits and mouthwatering acidity. These elements will allow freshness and crispy aromas once bottled. Look for white peach, apple, flowers, apricot and saline-tinged minerals in the nose and mouth.
The word “Crémant” was originally used in reference to “Champagne demi-mousse” which was a lower pressured Champagne. The actual vinification of this Crémant is called the “méthode traditionnelle” and is the same as the “méthode champenoise” of Champagne. This is an incredible value for those of us who love Champagne, and are looking for an 'everyday' option.
