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 the 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, Pinot Noir and Gamay grapes used in the production of the Cave de Lugny Crémant de Bourgogne Brut Rosé are sourced from the Maconnais region in southern Burgundy and offer an elegant style of sparkling wine. Specifically, this dry Crémant offers refreshing flavors of strawberry, cherry and red raspberry.  Lively and refined with well defined perlage, this balanced sparkler finishes with an echo of fresh red raspberries layered with a creamy texture.  Once you compare this to other sparkling wines at twice the price, you’ll quickly discover the value in this delicious bubbly!
