    The creation of exquisite crémant begins in the vineyard. Our crémant is made from one hundred percent chardonnay that comes from the vineyard of Beaujolais blanc. The grapes are hand-harvested, in the morning, into perforated crates. The base wine is obtained by gently pressing the whole clusters to yield 100 litres of juice for 150 kg of grapes. After the base wine receives approval from the INAO it is ready for tirage (addition of a yeast sugar mixture). The cuvee is fermented, aged on its fine lees for a minimum of 9 months and then undergoes the process of riddling. The crémant is disgorged and dosage (reserve wine, sweetened according to house style) is added to balance the wine. Our domain always makes crémant in the dry (brut) style exclusively. This traditional method of making effervescent wine is also known as méthode champenoise.
