NOTES BY OUR SOMMELIERS
👁 straw yellow, fine and persistent bubbles;
👃🏻 the nose is expressed on light notes of white flowers, white-fleshed fruit and brioche;
👄 On the palate it is round and fresh, well balanced, with a pleasant finish in which the yeasts that emerged on the nose and lovely floral hints return.
An inimitable and very elegant Bourgogne Cremant. Thanks to its fullness of taste and smell, it can be paired with fish or earthy starters, but also with shellfish or first courses, always fish-based.
WINE-MAKING AND REFINEMENT
Hand-harvested and carefully selected grapes. Harvesting takes place just before full ripeness to preserve the acidity that gives Burgundy Cremant its pleasant freshness. Vinification using the Champenoise Method: after adding the liquor de tirage, the second fermentation takes place in the bottle.

We are in one of the most vocated areas in the world: the Bourgogne region. A unique and evocative territory, capable of producing extraordinary wines. The soil and climatic conditions of Burgundy, combined with the special savoir-faire of the vignerons, due to centuries of quality agronomic practices, determine a unique terroir. The care and specificity of this region go so far as to define it as a climat, protected by UNESCO. The vineyards of Burgundy stretch for about 250 km between Chablis in the north and the Mâconnais in the south, bordering the Rhone valley. The climate is predominantly continental, with slight maritime influences in the western area up to Dijon and Mediterranean influences in the southernmost area. Winters are cold, frosts fairly frequent, sometimes even in spring; rainfall is minimal during the budding period but intense between May and June, which can compromise the flowering and therefore the harvest.
The soil of Burgundy is made up of marine sedimentations mixed with limestone, marl and clay, with limestone predominating in the Côte, from Dijon to Chagny. The territory is divided into these large sub-regions; the Auxerrois, the Chablis to the north in the Yonne, then the Côte-d'Or, the Chalonnais and Mâconnais and the Beaujolais. In the Chablis and Auxerrois, limestone-marly soils prevail, in the Côte d'Or the limestone-rich soil allows the pinot noir to express all its class, while in the southern zone clay and marl give great elegance to the chardonnay. In the Chalonnais and Chalonnais, limestone, marl and clay reign supreme, while in the Beaujolais the soil is limestone, schist and clay.
Olivier Chanzy was born in 1979 into a family of winemakers; he grew up in Bourgogne and after having studied oenology with the greatest French wine experts and having travelled all over the world, in 2013 he began to recover some abandoned, very run-down vineyards in the Meursault area, one of the most important in the world. Today, he can say that he has succeeded in this endeavour, thanks to his great determination: Chanzy currently makes wine mainly from pinot noir and chardonnay, and transfers the authentic spirit of the terroir (or rather the climat, as they say in Bourgogne) into each bottle.
To achieve this, he uses low-temperature vinification techniques, followed by ageing in stainless steel or French oak barrels for 12 to 18 months, avoiding mechanical interventions such as filtration.
With just 7 hectares under vine, he proposes some 15 appellations, more than half of which are in the Côte Chalonnaise, particularly the Bouzeron and Crémant de Bourgogne appellations, the cradle of his childhood.
In each bottle, Olivier Chanzy imprints his style, which from the fragrance of the olfactory hints aims to enhance finesse, power and elegance, unique traits of the Bourgogne terroir.
