Cause for Celebration!
Sharpen the appetite, awaken the wit and nourish the festive ambience!
Blason de Bourgogne Crémant de Bourgogne is made using exactly the same methods employed in the making of Champagne – the Méthode Traditionelle. It is a blend of premium Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Gamay and Aligotè grapes, and exhibits solid structure, mildly fruity flavor and fine bubbles. Because Burgundy's sparkling wines are not as well known as those from Champagne, they tend to cost considerably less. But don't be deceived by the price. Crémant de Bourgogne is every bit as good – or better – than wines carrying the Champagne moniker – just less pricey. We're selling Blason de Bourgogne for the unbelievably low price of $9.99* for a 750 ml bottle. Heck, that's cause for celebration right there!
According to international law, Champagne may only be produced in the Champagne region of France. But while the Champagnois hold title to their namesake sparklers, sparkling wine is actually produced in all of the world's winemaking regions. In other French regions, these wines are given the name Crémant.
