Henri Champliau is a family-owned sparkling wine producer in Mercurey, located in the heart of the Côte Chalonnaise region of Burgundy. Though they’re a bit of a new player on the scene, their méthode traditionnelle Sparkling wine has been turning some heads and challenging generations of tradition.
This is an absolute beauty coming out of Burgundy and a Cremant that catches you off guard. A beautiful pale pink blend that absolutely sings in a glass. It has a precise and intense mouth, dominated by the Pinot Noir that brings elegance and power and aided by the structure and freshness of the Chardonnay. The kicker is the Gamay that defies typical Burgundian methods and brings in another layer balance but with a little extra flair. It’s delicious.

Bursting with vibrant pink grapefruit and red berry aromas; a complexity of brioche, hibiscus and lime zest with a creamy mousse and an elegant, saline finish.
