Created in 1975, the A.O.C Cremant de Bourgogne covers the entire Burgundy wine region, from Chablis to the gates of Lyon. Cremants are produced using the traditional method: the still wine is bottled with yeasts and sugar, so as to go through a secondary fermentation.
Trenel’s Cremant de Bourgogne originates in the Cote Chalonnaise, from clay-limestone soils, perfect for the production of Chardonnay. It’s aged 36 months on laths, 3 times longer than what is decreed in the AOC’s specifications.
That gives it a deep structure and a great fineness.
This Cremant possesses a brilliant gold color. The bubbles are fine and pleasant in the mouth. The nose marries fresh aromas of acacia, green apple and white peach with buttery and nutty notes, due to its particularly long aging on laths.
It’s a gastronomic wine: round and very complex in the mouth.
How to drink and serve
Serve at 6 to 8 degrees throughout a meal. It goes beautifully with white meat or an old hard cheese, like parmesan. Try it on a dessert with walnuts or praline for another perfect match. Drink within 2 years after purchase.
