Crémant de Bourgogne, a variety which is ever increasing in popularity, is the appellation given to white or rosé sparkling wines produced in the Burgundy region of France. Naturally, the first question that crops up when a French sparkling wine is mentioned is – how does it compare to champagne?
Crémant de Bourgogne is crafted using the same exacting ‘Méthode Traditionelle’, resulting in excellent quality comparable to that of Champagne – yet this wine has a character all of its own. As one esteemed Crémant de Bourgogne wine maker summarised: “We’re very Burgundian in style…and we can make sparkling wines which express the quintessence of Burgundy. Champagne and Crémant de Bourgogne are cabbage and carrots — the same class of wine, but completely different from one another.”
Within Burgundy, Crémant de Bourgogne production areas are numerous and include world-famous names such as Chablis, Auxerre, Châtillon-sur-Seine along with a number of areas along the Côte Chalonnaise and the Côte d’Or. The result of these various sub-zones is a number of distinctive Crémant de Bourgogne wine styles. Some are more restrained and reserved, while others are extremely characterful. Many connoisseurs actually are driven to buy Crémant de Bourgogne wines for this reason.
