Earthy, minerality, chalky. Fun French bubbles. Nice acid, would like more fruit to show through

Loved this Crémant. Great value. Lively minerality and bubbles.

Light aromas of pear with a touch of a sulfur note. I was thinking non-vinifera drinking blindly. Seems a little unremarkable with a short, simple finish.

Fine pearly mousse with aromas of apricot, freshly cut birch wood, laurel, lime leaf, biscuit. Clean and fresh on the palate with quiet citrus and a finish of yellow peach. 80% pinot auxerrois, 10% pinot blanc, 10% chardonnay. 12% abv (sample)

Crisp and clean. Lemon zest and lees. This Cremant is a solid budget substitute for non-vintage Champagnes.

Bruised apples and pears - the mealy kind, which make for creamier, darker, more interesting orchard wines.

Crisp and buttery with light citrus and subtle lees notes. Fine bubbles and pleasant finish.
