Louis Bouillot Cremant De Bourgogne N.v.
White gold with a fine mousse and tiny bubbles. The bouquet is savoury with a subtle hint of marmite. First impression in the mouth is the boisterous fizz that eventually subsides to reveal bready, lightly malty flavours with delicate hints of apple and peach and a soft citrus vibe. Crisp, dry and savoury on the finish with a slight honey on toast nuance as the wine lingers. A blend of chardonnay and pinot noir aged in the bottle for 24 months on yeast lees and a great price for this Champagne look-alike from Burgundy that cleans the palate for the tasting ahead.
