Crémant de Bourgogne Extra Brut

Crémant de Bourgogne Extra Brut

This Crémant de Bourgogne is “Extra Brut, non dosé”, a sparkling wine (extra dry with no send-off dose added) made using a 100% Chardonnay white wine following the traditional method. The limestone-clay soil the vines grow in is perfectly adapted to the Chardonnay grape variety. The assembly of three vintages is a guarantee of balance and quality.

Personality of the cuvée

We love the fine, long-lasting bubbles in this Crémant extra brut. This cuvée brings you balance, liveliness and length on the palate.
