Crémant de Bourgogne, Brut, Domaine la Croix Montjoie
Domaine la Croix Montjoie was established in 2009, and was named after the crossroads of Vézelay, which lies between Chablis and Beaune. The estate has 10 acres of vineyards overlooking the basilica and the foothills of the Morvan. The vineyards and building management are family run, with the help of close friends, and all are involved in the on-going development of the business.
This characterful Crémant de Bourgogne is made predominantly from Chardonnay, with a proportion of Pinot Noir, Gamay and Aligoté thrown in for good measure and additional complexity. It has an altogether enticing quality, from the bouquet of white flowers through to the deliciously rounded palate: undeniably charming – in fact, disarmingly moreish.
