This is a fabulous Crémant from Domaine Gueguen made using Pinot Noir only and gives notes of red apple, bramble fruits and lovely ripe flavours, with a crisp fresh taste. A wonderful example of Cremant, and a great, more affordable, alternative to Champagne. Cremant is made in the same way as Champagne, and the area this one comes from (Bourgogne) has similar soil (terroir) as the Champagne area
Ideal as an apertif but with fish and shellfish, salty snacks, soft cheeses and chicken – delicious
Located in the small village of Prehy, just a few kilometres away from Chablis, Domaine Gueguen is regarded as an emerging star of the region, with passion and respect for the tradition and fragility of the terroir it sits on.
Domaine Gueguen was only created in 2013 but making Chablis has long been part of the family. Céline Gueguen-Brocard is the daughter of the renowned Jean-Marc Brocard. They prefer the freshness of Chablis fruit, so never use oak barrels for ageing. Their wines’ frankness, friendliness and purity really spoke to us upon first tasting.
Coming from a great lineage of winegrowers, Céline and Frédéric have used their experience to create their own piece of history in the heart of the Chablis vineyard – a Domaine that produces wines with a breath of freedom.
“At Domaine Gueguen we have chosen to be “artisan” winemakers. We produce real, whole, uncorrected wines with a vintage effect that is the consequence of everything that happens in the vineyards, manifestations of Mother Nature and climate: all our wines are characterized by their freshness and sincerity”
