Wine of the Week - David Renaud Crémant

With 2018 approaching, we just had to feature a sparkling wine this week. This dry, structured sparkler is perfect for all your festivities!

Hailing from the far north of Burgundy, this blanc de noirs is 100% Pinot Noir from Irancy. Sometimes referred to as the red wine of Chablis, Irancy is in the Côte Auxerrois, just north of the Cote d’Or. David Renaud’s domaine, which has been in his family for four generations, sits on 11 hectares under vine on soils of Kimmeridgean marl and brown limestone. It unfurls within the best territories in Irancy, Vincelottes and Cravant, at altitudes ranging from 150-250 meters. “I like to think of myself as an orchestra conductor,” says Renaud, “who is able to create beautiful compositions thanks to the talented people working with and around me.” He continues: “Without these people wine would not exist, and I would not be a winemaker.”
