The term “Crémant” is used to describe quality sparkling wines produced in France, outside of the designated region of Champagne. Generally, this term is used in conjunction with name of the appellation in which the sparkling wine is produced. As an example, a “Crèmant de Bourgogne” is a high quality sparkling wine produced within the Burgundy region of France under the strict guidelines of Methode Champenoise. The term “Crémant” should not be confused with the term “Cramant” (please note the difference in spelling.) The term “Cramant” is a reference to a Grand Cru Vineyard located within the region of Champagne in the Côte des Blancs.

The Chardonnay grapes used in the production of the Cave de Lugny Crémant de Bourgogne Brut are sourced from the Maconnais region in southern Burgundy and offer an elegant style of sparkling wine. Specifically, this dry Crémant offers refreshing citrus notes of creamy lemon custard and lime zest with a hint of baked yellow apple and supportive notes of blanched almonds and lightly toasted butter pastry.  Once you compare this to other sparkling wines at twice the price, you’ll quickly discover the value in this delicious bubbly!
