history
Based in Volnay, the Delagrange Family owns 32 acres of vineyard located amongst the best terroirs of the Côtes de Beaune. The business is run by Didier Delagrange, vinegrower and winemaker who produces high quality Burgundy wines (Bourgogne, Hautes Côtes de Beaune, Volnay, Pommard, Meursault) that are vinified and bottled at the Estate.The Domaine’s policy can be summarised in five points: • Careful, rigorous care of the vines as this is the start • Pick perfectly healthy grapes at the right moment. • Understand each vintage to preserve the natural balance of the wine. • Maintain the traditional character of the wine by intervening as little as possible during vinification • Preserve the body, the fruitiness and the aromatic purity of the wine during vinification to extract the
best from the noble Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grape varieties. •Didier DELAGRANGE aims to produce wines that are fleshy, round, rich in fruit and bursting with finesse and elegance
Vineyard
Crémant de Bourgogne is the appellation (AOC) for sparkling wines made by the Champagne method from the whole of the Burgundy region. The production area covers 1,115 hectares. The grapes from which the vins de base for Crémant de Bourgogne are made come from a wide variety of soils in vineyard districts throughout Bourgogne. They range from the chalky subsoil of the Joigny district in the North, to the granites of Southern Bourgogne, via the limestones and marls of the Côtes where most of the wines of this appellation are grown.

Tasting notes
The fine bubbles form a necklace of pearls. The wine has aromas of citrus fruit, flowers and minerals with a freshness and elegance in the mouth and an acidity that maintains the balance between the aromatic power and lightness.
Food pairing
Burgundy Crémants are ideal as an aperitif but can also go very well with a meal. The Crémants Blanc de Blancs, for example, will stand perfectly with a starter such as preserved poultry with pears and raisins or sautéed scallops. Serve for the aperitif or with the dessert between 4 and 8°C, otherwise between 6 and 9°C.
