Like a Blanc de Blancs Champagne, this sparkling white was made from Chardonnay and fermented in the bottle.
What You Need To Know
Good alternatives to pricey Champagne abound in France, though Burgundy’s crémants de Bourgogne come closest in flavor. That’s because they’re made chiefly from the same grape varieties (Chardonnay and Pinot Noir) using the same painstaking techniques, such as bottle fermentation. (The cheapest sparkling wines, on the other hand, get their fizz the same way that soda pop does: from an injection of carbon dioxide.) This overachieving, Chardonnay-based cuvée from Maison Vitteaut-Alberti—a small crémant producer in Rully—was created by Agnès Vitteaut not long after she joined the family firm in 2004. It’s aged for at least 18 months before release, which gives its delicate citrus flavors a light nutty edge.
