Vineyard
Crémant de Bourgogne is the appellation (AOC) for sparkling wines made by the Champagne method from the whole of the Burgundy region. It was first made at the beginning of the 19th century at Chablis, Nuits-Saint-Georges, Rully and Tonnerre. It was for a long time the practice to make effervescent versions of prestigious Burgundian Grands Crus but the AOC status granted in 1975 laid down strict conditions for its production on the basis of meticulously-applied traditional skills to achieve high-quality vinification.
Winemaking
Hand picking - Only the first presses -, much richer and more complex, are selected. The sparkle is created by the addition of a liqueur de tirage when the wine is bottled. This causes a second fermentation to take place in the bottle, which creates carbon dioxide. This in turn produces the bubbles in the glass when the wine is poured. The bottles are then held in racks pointing downwards so the yeast deposits collect in the neck. The bottles are then rotated or “riddled” to encourage the deposits to fall. These yeasts are then disgorged and a liqueur d’expédition is added. Ageing 12 to 18 months in the cellar.
