Paul Robin Cremant de Bourgogne NV
The Collective Review
Cremant de Bourgogne is such an underrated style, and here's another example.
It's always important to realise that Champagne and the northern end of Burgundy are so close together, and with this Mystery Fizz you're getting the richness of Burgundy, but a sense of freshness too.
Stir in some complexity from lees ageing and the addition of older reserve wines and gee whizz, this lovely sparkling wine could beat a few Champagne releases that are twice the price!
Seriously delicious and affordable French fizz.

The golden yellow colour of this Cremant de Bourgogne its delicate bubbles highlight the finesse of its effervescence. Its fruity flavour with citrus notes expresses a great harmony that will enhance each moment of conviviality. It presents all its elegance during aperitifs or when served with poultry with sauce. We recommend that you serve it chilled at 7-8 degrees celcius.
In order to respect the grape, harvesting is done by hand. The grapes come from 200ha of vines and also the range of wine-growing areas that Burgundy, an ideal land for fine wines, offers. Only the first presses, richer and more complex, for this specific wine are used. The Cremant is vinified at the estate using 20 to 25% reserve wines, and a dosage (or residual sugar) level kept at below 10/gms per litre.
