Crémant de Bourgogne Moillard-Grivot

A blend of classic Burgundy grapes – Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Gamay and the lesser grown Aligote.

They are mainly sourced from vineyards in the Cotes and Haute Cotes de Beaune and de Nuits (limestone and marl soils) plus the Cotes Chalonnise (granite soils) and Epineuil (Kimmeridgian clay and limestone).

The grapes are pressed on immediate arrival at the winery and fermented in stainless steel vats at 18C. Secondary fermentation is in bottle, which are matured for 12 months and stored on their sides (‘sur latte’; as happens in Champagne) before being put in gyropallets and disgorged off the lees. A ‘liqueur d’expedition’ tops up the bottles before corking.



Grape Varieties:
Aligote, Chardonnay, Gamay, Pinot Noir
Tasting Notes:

Golden yellow in colour with fine bubbles and a persistent mousse. Floral aromas are backed by hazelnut and peach notes; the soft palate shows some grean apple character with a delicate and creamy finish.

An ideal aperitif, it can also accompany a main meal or fruit based deserts

About the Producer


Moillard-Grivot is a prestigious name in Nuits-Saint-George, Burgundy. Its history dates back to 1848 with the marriage of vineyard owners Symphorien Moillard and Marherite Grivot. Its expansion, within a few years of its founding, was a result of an export deal to Belgium.

Owning over 19ha of vines they also established themselves as a specialist merchant – the largest shippers in Nuits-Saint-George – and in the traditional negociant role of buying and bottling. Distribution and marketing these days is through Maison Francois Martenot, based in Meursault.
