Paris, France — It is a nice alternative to champagne, and often is nothing like it. The 100% Chardonnay Imperial Brut Crémant de Bourgogne from the Orfèvres du Vin cooperative in Burgundy which brings together some 70 wine producers in Burgundy and Macon has brought out an award winning sparkling wine. It has very fine bubbles, notes of vine peaches and white flowers and a rich and robust robe. Three vintages have been assembled into this deliciously dry sparkling wine emanating from specific parcels of vineyard. White sparkling Burgundy wine tends to e full-bodied, yet dry. Crémant, the name, is derived from the creamy foam that this sparkling wine produces when it is poured into the glass.
