Tasting Notes

The story

Crémant is a term used to describe sparkling wines from France produced using the same method as Champagne but originating from regions other than Champagne. Some can be lighter and crisp in style, closer to Prosecco than Champagne but the Crémants de Bourgogne, especially those from Southern Burgundy, are one of France's best kept secrets as they can make a really good value alternative to champagne.

The wine

This is a lovely fresh but medium-bodied example from Domaine Thibert, one of Burgundy's top producers. It is a real salmon pink colour with fairly subtle aromas of red fruits and a Champagne-like hint of biscuit and brioche. It has a persistent mousse and on the palate fruits abound - redcurrant, pomegranate, red cherries, strawberries - with rosewater and vanilla cream. The fruits balance well with the fresh acidity and the hint of tannin and you are left with a long-lasting creamy, rich, red fruit finish. This really is a wine with attitude!

Tasted blind, this could well pass for Champagne and makes a very good value party drink. Try some of Domaine Thibert's other wines - its St Véran or its Pouilly Vinzelles


Food Pairing

Drink on its own, with canapés, smoked salmon, caviar, shellfish including lobster, fish, chicken, turkey and desserts especially fruit based desserts such as sorbet.

"...do not ignore their rip-roaring fruit packed sparkling Crémant rosé"    

Full of red fruits and notes of biscuit and brioche.  Tasted blind, this could well pass for Champagne and makes a very good value party drink.
