In sparkling, this Crémant de Bourgogne rosé vinified in traditional method (the same as in Champagne) in Nuit-Saint-Georges is distinguished by the delicacy of its bubbles, its notes of red fruits, its freshness and its greedy mouth. A treat with a dish of bocconcini basil tomatoes, a tataki of black sesame tuna or a strawberry leaf verrine of mint leaves.
