Pre-Arrival Offer | Oppa Cognard Style!
Post date: Nov 1, 2012 12:09:05 PM
Every once in a while, we come across a wine from Burgundy that is such great value we can hardly conceal our glee.
Today's offer is a sparkling wine from Burgundy that drives like a Champagne at half the price. We tasted this in Singapore (and again in Burgundy) and were pretty much blown away by the price-quality-ratio of this wine. We've since put a bunch of these on a boat (in reefer of course) headed for our shores.
This domaine Crémant is made in small quantities using the Traditional Champagne Method (i.e. made in the same way as Champagne). It is aged on lees for at least fifteen months, adding complexity that only time can endow.
The 100% Pinot Noir fruit is sourced from the domaine's vineyards around the village of Bissey-sur-Cruchaud north of Montagny. In the skillful hands of Laurent Cognard, these vineyards with limestone soils render a balanced Crémant de Bourgogne with generosity, minerality and a refreshing quality.
Pre-arrival orders are now open. The wines will be delivered to your doorsteps in the first week of December, well ahead of the holidays season.
