Terroir & Vinification

The base wines of the Crémant come from the different subdivisions of the Burgundy vineyards. The base wines however are predominantly produced from the vines of the Côtes and Hautes Côtes of Beaune and Nuits and the Côtes Chalonnaise.

Vinification : Traditional method. The grapes are pressed immediately upon arrival at the winery in pneumatic presses. The fermentation is carried out in stainless steel vats at 18°C. The base wines are then assembled.

Fermentation (second alcoholic fermentation) in bottles and maturing for 12 months ("Sur latte") before being put in gyro-pallets and disgorged to eliminate the deposit in the bottle. Addition of expedition liqueur before capping and muzzling.

The vines were grown on different soils: limestone and marl in the Cotes de Nuits, Cotes de Beaune and Cote Chalonnaise and granite in Southern Burgundy.
