About this wine
The best thing about Crémant is that it's an awful lot like Champagne but without the price tag! It's made in exactly the same way but simply hails from a different region. This particular one is from Burgundy.
It has all the grown up flavours you want from a serious sparkling but also has a element of fun. It tastes like summer in a glass. The bubbles are fine but not overly excitable making it all far to easy to sink half a bottle before you've even had a chance to blink...
This is the kind of sparkling you can keep sipping in all situations. It's at home when you're throwing a party and is also a great wine to show up to a picnic with. It can dress up, or down, and it's style is always on point.
What Makes It So Grape?
35% Pinot Noir
Produced in Burgundy. France
Patriarche Père et Fils was founded 234 years ago in 1780 by Jean-Baptiste Patriarche. Located in the famous town of Beaune in the heart of Burgundy, Patriarche has grown from being a traditional Burgundy house to one of France’s largest producers and merchants, or “négociant”. It offers wines from every single Burgundy appellation, working with growers with whom they have nurtured partnerships for many years
Patriarche is based in the former Visitandines convent in the centre of Beaune, and its finest assets are arguably its 17th century vaulted cellars, some of the most extensive “caves” in Burgundy, that run for several kilometres underneath the streets of the town. In these vaulted, labyrinth-esque galleries, millions of bottles are either stored or aged in barrels, tuns and tanks.
