CRÉMANT DE BOURGOGNE Purity of the mineral freshness of a Crémant Blanc de Blancs with an elegant and persistent finish.
Appearance This Crémant de Bourgogne with its brilliant golden colour reveals a fine cordon of delicate bubbles. Nose The nose is subtle with lemon and floral notes.

Pairing Very fine and delicate as an aperitif, it goes well with seafood, shellfish and sushi.
