BRUT CRÉMANT DE BOURGOGNE 2016 Traditional method, AP, Burgundy, France
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer CHARTRON ET TRÉBUCHET
Bright pale straw colour. Attractive, slightly spicy, bright, ripe, lemon-apple meringue nose with some mineral notes. Dry, medium bodied, quite well structured, slightly spicy, attractive, ripe, fresh, lemon-apple meringue flavours with a lingering, mineral-tinged, effervescent finish. This very tasty, well-priced, “Cremant” is made in the classic Champagne-method and has 11.5% and 11 g/L residual sugar with lot number L00806501 on the lower part of the glass bottle. Has not appeared in Vintages before. The Vintages Catalogue incorrectly says that the company is owned by Maison Francois Martenot. The holdings, which date back to 1859, were consolidated by Jean Chartron and Louis Trébuchet in 1984. Vincent Sauvestre acquired the company in 2004 who perpetuates the quality achieved by Chartron-Trébuchet. TONY ASPLER - BEST BUY - 90-points - Pale straw in colour with an active mousse of tiny bubbles; fresh bouquet of green apple and pear; dry, medium-bodied, apple, pear and lemon flavours with a thread of minerality and good length.
