Looking for a sparkling wine that’s just like Champagne but costs much less? Pick up a bottle of Blason de Bourgogne Crémant de Bourgogne Cuvée Brut.
This sparkling wine is nearly identical to Champagne. It is made in France, from the same varietals used to make Champagne and produced in the same method as Champagne. It just can’t be called Champagne because it’s not from that region; it’s produced just a hop, skip and a four hour drive away in Burgundy.
Besides Burgundy, Crémants are made in several regions in France including Alsace, Loire and Bordeaux. For the quality and the price, Crémant is hard to beat.
Blason de Bourgogne Crémant de Bourgogne Cuvée Brut comes in at just under $10 a bottle. For the price, this Crémant is extremely elegant and flavorful. Aromas of pear, apple and toasted bread continue to develop on the palate, culminating in a crisp finish that has a hint of toasted almonds. With its small, energetic bubbles this sparkling wine is easy to drink and light on the tongue, with enough going on to keep you interested through your final sip.
A bottle of the Blason de Bourgogne Crémant de Bourgogne Cuvée Brut costs between $9 and $10.
