Louis Bouillot, Crémant de Bourgogne

€23.99

Gorgeous French sparkling wine made from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir - but at this price?! Many of the thrills of the more famous region to the north, this is sparkling wine that is delicious, complex and full of ripe yellow and golden fruit flavours that deliver a satisfying mouthfeel and a long finish.

Crémant de Bourgogne though is more than just a Champagne-like option: it's made in a different and more consistent climate, from fruit that typically gives broader and riper flavours on the palate. True, Champagne's magical terroir and the typical ageing process in the chalky caves make for the most spectacular wines of their style in the world, but this isn't Champagne!

In fact, the other Crémants from around France are not trying to copy Champagne either, it is simply that as a colossus of a wine style, all others that are similar will always tend to be compared to it. This is different, but very similar.

The biggest reason for the similarities (beyond bubbles) is that the two principal grape varieties in Champagne are the two principal grape varieties in Burgundy and that is why it is such a great region for making sparkling wines. It's not to say that The Allotment hasn't served Crémant and been congratulated on their Champagne while simultaneously neglecting to correct their guests on purpose, it's just that... well, you know... no one likes a know-it all.

I emailed Chris looking for wine recommendations for a birthday gift. Got a really speedy, helpful reply and not only that but he hand delivered it on time to the birthday girl wishing her a happy birthday. Absolutely bowled over by the service. Cannot recommend highly enough.

Could not recommend The Allotment enough. The selection is fantastic and each wine that I've drank from them has been utterly phenomenal. Delivery was no hassle and I had the wine at my door in 2 days. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.

A great experience ordering from The Allotment Wine Company. A wide variety of wines to try something new and at good prices with super quick delivery! Really convenient too as opposed to trying to find parking!

★★★★★
Delicious and interesting range of wines delivered promptly to my door. Not far off that lovely feeling of coming back laden from a good wine store but without any of the traffic or the worry of breaking the wine en route (very impressive travel wrap).
