Pale straw in colour with a very fine and persistent mousse. The wine is fresh, delicate and beautifully balanced with a delightful floral finish, deriving additional complexity from long maturation on the lees. Perfect as an aperitif.
Made by the traditional method: after the first alcoholic fermentation, the wine is bottled and a special liqueur de tirage (a mixture of wine, sugar and yeast) added. It then undergoes secondary fermentation in bottle and remains 'sur lattes' (on its lees) for at least 24 months before disgorgement.
Les Caves de Bailly are the leading producers of Crémant de Bourgogne with 40% of total production for the appellation. The wines are matured for a minimum of two years in quarries dating back to the 12th century. The grapes - Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Aligoté - are harvested manually, and vinified separately, and the wines are presented under a brand new, bright, contemporary label.
