Our traditional method sparkling dry white, made with our own hand-picked grapes and second fermentation in bottle. A lovely aperitif. £16.50 a bottle.
New release. Crémant is made in the same way as Champagne but comes from different parts of France, and can be underrated. The traditional method of making a Crémant has strict rules - it must be picked by hand into crates, the bunches pressed in a certain way and, after the first fermentation to make the initial base wine, the second fermentation has to be in the bottle (not in a big tank). The CO2 is captured in the bottle for the gentle fizz.
The back label: "We hand picked the grapes from a block of Sémillon vines, which we planted in 2004, and pressed and cool fermented the juice. A second fermentation in bottle created a sparkling wine using the 'méthode traditionnelle'. It is dry, elegant and refreshing." 11% vol.
"More depth and richness of flavour than found in most Crémant – impressive." Bordeaux 'Hot 50 selection' for 2020.
