Crémant de Bourgogne 1996 Extra-Brut Louis Picamelot first at the tasting of old vintages Crémants

In the supplement "Crémants de France" of the French magazine Bourgogne Aujourd'hui from this month, you can discover a special article based on the tasting of olde vintages Crémants from all the regions of France.


During this tasting, 80 crémants from the vintage 2010 to 1996 were tasted, the first ever! We were happy to see that our Crémant de Bourgogne 1996 Extra-Brut with an exceptional result of 19/20 as well as our Cuvée Jean-Baptiste Chautard 2010 in 3rd position with 17.5/20.

 

Our Crémant de Bourgogne Extra-Brut 1996 was the oldest cuvee tasted by the judges and here are the tasting comments : 

 

"19/20 - Gold colour, very fine bubbles, evanescent. This 100% chardonnay evokes toasted hazelnuts, spices, beeswax and vanilla. On the palate, we find praline sides and impressive tastes of roasting supported by a delicate freshness that is the final in the mouth. A crémant full of vinosity, very solid and with an impressive character and lengh.  Exceptional!"

 

To allow passionnate people to discover this exceptional cuvee, we decided to sell a few bottles of this wine this end of the year. The cuvée Extra-Brut 1996 is sold at 42 € TTC, within the limit of available stocks and will be disgorged at demand.
