Sparkling Wine from Burgundy
For the first time ever I tasted a sparking wine from Burgundy known as Cremant. The grapes were sourced mostly from the northern appellations of Burgundy which is relatively near the region of Champagne so there is a similar (definitely not the same) climatic conditions. Also, in Burgundy they grow the same wine grapes as Champagne (chardonnay and pinot noir as well as aligote which is not found in Champagne) so you would imagine a similar tasting wine, and to be honest there were many similarities.
Wine: Vitteaut-Alberti, Cremant de Bourgogne, Brut, Burgundy
Grapes: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Aligote
Color: pale stray color with small vibrant but not abundant bubbles
Nose: floral and fruity with hints of apple
Taste: rich with light acidity similar to fuji apple.
