Extraordinary French Bubbles at an unbeatable price
The Domaine de la Grande Cote Cremant de Bourgogne NV was not only tasters hit of my last Wineseek tasting, for good reason it is awesome. This is sensational drinking, close your eyes, sip and you will think a quality Champagne.
This sparkler is made next door to the Champagne region without the price tag. The 41 ha estate is the largest vineyard in Chatillonnais, which is the part of Burgundy that borders the Champagne region. Planted with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay varieties in low vines, it benefits from the same clay-limestone soils that Champagne does.
This Cremant de Bourgogne has a gold and shinning colour. The nose is precise, with notes of honey, quince jam and candied citrus fruits. The palate is smooth and fresh and the finish is long and dry.
