Here is a crispy and lively Crémant de Bourgogne, from 20 years old chardonnay grapes organically grown 80 above sea level in the commune of Serrieres.
The grapes were hand-harvested. This wine underwent a malolactic fermentation, and the wine had a period of 15 months of secondary fermentation and ageing in bottle, that gives it some depth.
Crémant de Bourgogne blanc de blancs n/v (Jean-Claude Thévenet)
Straw yellow. Green apple, lime, a touch of bread and yeast. Crispy, almost dry (towards the drier end of brut) and a nice acidity in the aftertaste.
Food: Aperitif, fish, shellfish, sushi, light meat
Dear Vidar, I may hope those grapes are not 20 years old… ?.
I really enjoy this Crémant! Cheers, Willem
Thanks for your reply! You are of course right, it’s the vines. 😉 Otherwise the wine would have been slightly different, I suppose.
