Tasting Notes

A sparkling Burgundy crémant made from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The vines are from the area of Auxerrois, adjacent to Chablis, and boast a mineral-driven character due to the chalky soils of the region. A sophisticated sparkler to enjoy throughout a meal.

Staff Pick Notes

Crémant wines (French sparkling wines made in the same method as champagne, just not in Champagne) are excellent for nights when you want a well made and elegant sparkling wine but don't want to pay top dollar for Champagne. Ones from Burgundy are particularly great as the terroir shares similarities with Champagne, providing some complexity. I also love Crémant as a follow-up to Champagne when the occasion calls for opening a second bottle that doesn't need to be Champagne-level. Crémant de Bourgogne Brut, Dom. de La Grande Côte is featured regularly in my lineup because it is a fabulous wine that's rich with yellow apples and pear. It finishes with a beautiful minerality that I think sets it apart from the rest.

In Chablis, Chardonnay is left unoaked to produce lean, crisp, steely wines with incredible acidity - a far cry from the vanilla-oak bombs that so many consumers associate with this grape. Fans of rich, unctuous, and well-oaked Chardonnay will enjoy Chassagne-Montrachet, whose age-worthy offerings offer all the fatness...

Chardonnay

From Champagne to Chablis, it's hard (not to mention unpleasant) to avoid this famous white variety. During a huge popularity surge beginning in the late 1980s, Chardonnay plantings have increased dramatically -- not only in California's wine country, with which the variety is nearly synonymous, but also in Burgundy (its original, Old World home) and just about everywhere else in the winemaking...
