Crèmant de Bourgogne Cuvèe Royale - Domaine Loron
This Crèmant de Bourgogne Cuvèe Royale is pressed entirely from Chardonnay grapes harvested in the southeastern Mâconnais vineyards. The wine was then raised for two months in oak barrels and then quietly aged for over 18 months in bottle. This creates a powerful, golden yellow and delicious bubbly wine. In the trade press, the wine was described as "White fruit, a little smoky, soft taste, not bone dry, ..... Just very nice". A perfect aperitif to serve at 6 to 8˚C. Also as an accompaniment to the illustrious WijnDijck salmon omelet with cress, this is a distinctly good choice (feel free to ask for the recipe).
