Cremant de Bourgogne Domaine de la Verpaille Brut 2017
We were delighted to discover that Domaine de la Verpaille make a Cremant de Bourgogne from 100% Chardonnay. It is a full bodied, round sparkling wine that offers far better value than cheap Champagne. It is produced in the traditional Champagne method and has a dosage of 2g/l added. Rich fruit, amazing aromatics and elegant bubbles – top stuff!
Domaine de la Verpaille is owned and run by Baptiste & Estelle Philippe who are the 5th generation of their family to run this charming wee estate in the heart of Vire-Clesse. Production is focused on the Chardonnay grape and the vineyards were certified Organic in 2006. All their wines are lees aged for 12 months before release which gives a characteristic richness and depth of flavour which is simply wonderful.
