Dom Stéphane Aladame Crémant de Bourgogne Brut

Côte Chalonnaise, Burgundy

Domaine Stéphane Aladame

Stéphane Aladame is one of the rising stars of the younger generation of French vignerons and has already attracted a considerable amount of attention in France...

His wines are deeply serious and rank among the best to come from this appellation. Unlike many young winemakers, Stéphane is not carrying on a family tradition. Instead, at the age of 18, having finished his studies in Beaune, he started renting vineyards to make wine before buying a modest 6.5 hectares of his own. His vineyards are now organic.

Vineyards

Grapes for this Crémant de Bourgogne were grown in the Aladame family`s Montagny vineyards, in the far south of the Côte Chalonnaise. This is a Blanc de Blancs sparkling wine, made only from white grapes, from the classic Burgundy grape, Chardonnay.

Vinification

The grapes are picked by hand in open boxes and gently pressed immediately after. The first fermentation is carried out in temperature controlled, stainless steel tanks. The wine is then bottled and stored on shelves for 9 months. The length of time before release varies depending on the vintage.

Tasting Notes

Aromas of white fruits with notes of acacia. On the palate, the Cremant is supple, attractive and dominated by peach flavours. It is fresh and crisp with good minerality and a long finish.
