This vintage Crémant de Bourgogne 2018 from Saincharny is in my view better than a great many champagnes. And not only is the vintage now on its way to our warehouse, but with its smart new label design looks ever more the part.

Saincharny make their crémant in the same way and from the same grape varieties as champagne, but in less expensive neighbouring Burgundy and at one of the best winemaking cooperatives in France, the Caves de Lugny of Mâcon. When we first discovered it nearly 15 years ago, we couldn’t believe our luck. It never disappoints. Its quality is outstanding with every vintage.

How does the wine taste? Customer Reviews (3)
Lots of fresh fruit on the nose with a hint of creamy nuttiness that lends real complexity to the palate. Extra bottle age deepens this complexity in more savoury layers that develop, making for a crémant of real sophistication that also represents remarkable value for money.

Excellent, a regular in our house where my wife has a superb palate and prefers this to almost all champagnes (previous vintage)

"If you don't need champagne but do need first-class bubbles, then the 2017 Cave de Lugny Crémant de Bourgogne 'Émérite' is the one. Made in the champagne method from Chardonnay/Pinot Noir, its stunning quality at a derisory price. Ive lost count of how often Ive banged on about it, served it, drunk it and begged for more."
Jonathan Ray, The Spectator Magazine
"Acacia, honeysuckle, white flowers and honeyed citrus fruit on the nose, tarte au citron and buttery pastry notes, really inviting. Well-rounded and succulent palate, juicy lemons and limes, crisp green apples and ripe pears. Good vibrancy and density with drive, refined and harmonious -incredibly moreish. An excellent time to drink this as a far superior alternative to cheap Champagne. Made by the highly-rated Cave de Lugny cooperative in southern Burgundy. Drink 2021-2026."
