Sparkling wines made using the traditional method, from iconic French terroirs.
Crémants are white or rose sparkling wines with a Protected Designation of Origin. They can be made in eight regions of France: Alsace, Bordeaux, Burgundy, Die, Jura, Limoux, Loire and Savoie. The initial fermentation in vats is followed by a second fermentation in the bottle during which time the bubbles are formed. This is followed by a minimum of 9 months of aging in the bottle. Virtually every region has classic grape varieties like Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, but each region also has its own varieties such as Riesling in Alsace, Chenin Blanc in Loire, Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon in Bordeaux, Poulsard in the Jura and Clairette in Die.
