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.
Pretty, fresh scents of
citrus and almond.
Zesty and dry, with fruity
Serve with hors d’oeuvres
as an aperitif, or pair with
light shellfish dishes and
