French Crémant is a type of sparkling wine produced in France using the traditional method of secondary fermentation in the bottle, the same method used to produce Champagne. However, unlike Champagne, Crémant is made in different regions of France using a variety of grapes, which gives it a unique character and flavor profile.
Crémant is made with the same grape varieties as Champagne, such as Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, as well as other grape varieties specific to the region where the wine is produced. The most common regions for Crémant production in France are Alsace, Burgundy, the Loire Valley and Jura.
Crémant wines are known for their high quality and affordability, often priced lower than Champagne. They tend to be drier than other sparkling wines and have a crisp, refreshing taste. Crémant is a versatile wine that goes well with a variety of dishes, including seafood, cheese and desserts.
Le Connaisseur carries an extensive range of Crémant wines from various well-known wineries from France, such as Anne Gros, Louis de Grenelle, Vinonbles de 2 Lunes, Dopff au Moulin, Domaine Cady, Domaine des Pothiers and Domaine des Baumard.
