This is a fabulous Crémant from Domaine Gueguen made using Pinot Noir only and gives notes of red apple, bramble fruits and lovely ripe flavours. A wonderful example, and a great alternative to Champagne.

It is bright and limpid with flecks of gold. The bubbles are fine. The aromas are fresh and fruity, marked by notes of pear, apple, and almonds. A few floral and spicy notes provide additional complexity.

A perfect Crémant for an aperitif, which can also be used as a starter with oysters, scallops or try with a main course of sole meunière.

Crémant is the name for a wine vinified with Champagne methods but outside of the region of Champagne. The Chablis area produces some of the best Crémants in France and one reason is that its soil is not that dissimilar to that of Champagne's. Definitely a wine to explore which delivers excellent value for its quality.

Burgundy, France

Burgundy (or Bourgogne in French) is small in size, the Côte d'Or has about 8000 hectares under vine, yet its influence is immense. It is home to some of the best known and most expensive wines in the world. Look in the right places and there is great quality and superb value to be found.

The two major grapes are Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, though you can find small pockets of well-made Aligoté.

Pinot Noir

When made well, Pinot Noir shines. When young it has delicious aromas of cherries, raspberries, and strawberries.

As the wine ages, it will develop complexity and mystery. It has the capacity to become a gamey style of wine. It will show notes of autumn, truffles and mushrooms, especially when originating from the top vineyards of Burgundy.
