Crémant de Bourgogne 'Émérite', Sainchargny 2018
The fact that you can get a vintage sparkling wine of this quality for this priceis truly astonishing, and with prices of everything rising so much these days, this is one little luxury we can still treat ourselves to. 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 couldnt believe our luck. Better than very many champagnes, we thought. Its also made from the same grape varieties and by the same techniques as their neighbours in Champagne, but in this case from vineyards located in Burgundy. Its quality remains quite outstanding with every vintage.

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)
