Crémant de Bourgogne 'Émérite', Sainchargny 2018
If you're looking for a fine fizz to uncork throughout the festive season, make it our vintage Crémant de Bourgogne. Because not only does it share many similarities with its much more expensive neighbour (same grape varietals and production method as champagne) but comes in at a third the price.
The fact that you can get a vintage sparkling wine of this quality for this price is truly astonishing. We found the Sainchargny crémant over ten years ago at what is one of the best grower cooperatives in France, the Caves de Lugny of Mâcon. Upon tasting it, we couldn't believe our luck. Better than very many champagnes, we thought.

Excellent, a regular in our house where my wife has a superb palate and prefers this to almost all champagnes (previous vintage)
Really excellent and thoroughly enjoyed by all who tasted it - a brilliant alternative to champagne. In my view preferable! (previous vintage)
An amazing sparkling wine. Worth exploring. It's dry but drinkable (previous vintage)
