Albert Bichot Crémant de Bourgogne Rosé: Burgundy, France
Grapes: Pinot Noir/ Chardonnay/ Gamay
Region/History Notes: Crémant is the title used for sparkling wines made throughout France that are made in the “traditional method” or “champagne method” (basically just following the rules of winemaking for Champagne but aren’t true Champagne. They can be great values and beautiful wines- and who doesn’t need a bottle of go-to high quality bubbles that is always stocked in your fridge? Albert Bichot is a force to be reckoned with in France- he works with growers all over Burgundy to make lots of high quality wines without the high price tag that still show typicity.
Tasting Notes: Big bubble structure with soft mousse. Yeasty and brioche notes with white cherry. Don’t just think toasting/celebration, bubbles are great with food! Anything fried/salty/and not too spicy will be wonderful
