Why We Love It...

Someone wise once said you should always have a bottle of bubbles in your fridge, just in case an impromptu celebration arises. That advice is something we live by – perhaps a bit too strictly – and I happen to believe your “just in case” sparkling wine should be both affordable and high-quality. Hailing from one of Burgundy’s most famous bubbly houses, this 91-point Crémant de Bourgogne is as magnificent as it is value-packed, making it your perfect emergency bubbles fridge-stocker!

Love, family, and the pursuit of good wine – these are the themes that best describe La Maison du Crémant. Back in the 1890s, two winemaking brothers from Pommard married two sisters whose family owned vineyard lands in Pommard, Nuits-Saints-George, and Vougeot. The wines weren’t Grand Cru or Premier Cru holdings, nor were they famous or exceptional lieu dits. The still wines were fine – middling at best – so, the brothers opted to “champagne-ize” the wines, a popular option among Burgundy producers at that time, to be sold to the English or overseas in America, or even to the “large tables” of the Parisians that had made all things bubbly quite fashionable among the impoverished and the aristocracy alike. Thus, La Maison du Crémant was born in 1895.

As time passed, the Maison du Crémant became known as one of the most consistent producers of “mousseaux” (Burgundy bubbly made in the Champagne style prior to the 1975 classification that formalized “Crémant de Bourgogne”) to be found anywhere. The original Moingeon brothers eventually passed on the company to their son and son-in-law, Albert Moingeon and Pierre Barbier, in 1922. This move bore unexpected fruit when Pierre invented the automatic post – a revolutionary piece of equipment for the sparkling wine industry, and a sort of precursor to the gyropalette used to turn bottles as they age at most sparkling productions the world over today. 

I digress…let’s return to the wine! This is a blend of fruit from holdings across Côte de Beaune, Côte de Nuits, and Côte Chalonnaise – with the grapes split between chardonnay, pinot noir, and aligoté. The grapes are harvested and fermented separately, then blended and bottled to undergo secondary fermentation in glass. A liqueur de tirage of sugar and yeast is added to kickstart this process, and then aging for 9 months on the lees following. Disgorgement and a dosage of 10 g/liter follow – and a cork and cage seal the deal!

What results is traditional, delightful stuff that is sure to surprise you given the incredible price! The flavors and aromas are clean, vibrant, and remarkably integrated, with zippy and fresh sensations of lemon, chalk, almonds, toasted biscuits, white flowers, river rocks, flinty minerality, lime zest, golden apples, and Bartlett pears all flitting about the glass, luring you to take large, greedy sip after sip until your glass stands sadly dry. The mouthfeel is round and voluptuous, with a creamy and bone-dry finish that dissipates softly without any harshness. You’ll be impressed, and any guests will be sure to “revisit” the bottle time and time again! At this price, large quantities are the sure choice, trust me. One of the best Crémant de Bourgogne values we have found, and surely a new house favorite!

About the Producer

The Moingeon family has had a presence in Burgundy since the fifteenth century: Jehan Moingeon, born in 1415 was a farmer, he probably never imagined that two of his 1500 descendants were going to give birth in the nineteenth century to one of the most prestigious houses of Burgundy: La Maison du Crémant. The origin of the company began with two very unusual weddings. The brothers Francis and Albert Moingeon, winemakers in Pommard married two sisters respectively, Louise and Bertha. They settled in 1895 in Nuits-Saint-Georges and jointly "champagnized" and commercialized the wines of their production located in Pommard, Nuits-Saint-Georges and Vougeot. Thus was born La Maison du Crémant.
