Henri Champliau Cremant de Bourgogne Brut Authentique
Henri Champliau is a family home located in Mercurey, heart of the Côte Chalonnaise in Burgundy. Founded by Alexandre GRAFFARD, grandson of Henri Champliau, they offer Crémant de Bourgogne, made from traditional methods from noble grape varieties, Pinot Noir & Chardonnay and a range 'Signatures' with the same quality requirement specific to the house.
This cremant come from plots dedicated to the production of Cremant de Bourgogne. The vine is worked specifically to obtain the best possible wines. Harvesting is done by hand only, yields are limited, pressing is delicate and the base wines are vinified separately. It is then that the assembly takes place, a subtle exercise that will define the style of the house. The cuvée is then bottled to follow the traditional method of secondard fermentation and aging for 12 months minimum. After all these steps then disgorging, the dosage and dressing of the bottles takes place.
Pieropan Soave Classico 2017
The Trebbiano di Soave grapes were hand picked from mid-September, while the Garganega grapes were picked later in October. The grapes were destemmed and crushed, with the free run juice fermented separately between 14-18°C in glass-lined cement tanks. The wine remained on its fine lees for a period of time, which varies according to the vintage. In the spring following the harvest, the wine was bottled and then released after at least a further month in bottle.
This is a fresh and expressive Soave, with classic aromas of white flowers, almond blossoms and a touch of citrus. Rounded, ripe fruit is perfectly balanced by a fresh, clean acidity. Long and fragrant, it has a note of fine, almond pastry on the finish.

Fantastic Domaine produced and bottled white Burgundy at affordable price from an extremely talented winemaker.
