BE IT CREMANT OR CRAMANT, IT’S ALWAYS GRAND

 

So, prior to becoming an extremely important Grand Cru village within the world of Champagne, there was in fact a sparkling wine from Cramant that was called ‘Cremant de Cramant.’ Cremant, of course, is what you expect any other sparkling wine to be designated as throughout France that is NOT from Champagne but it’s good to know that at one point this very confusing, yet likely delicious alliteration once existed. 

 

The local Cremant style of wine is still produced today by some of the older houses, mainly for local consumption, and the only thing that separates the wine from Champagne is that it has almost half the amount of atmospheres (i.e. pressure and size of bubbles). Modern Champagne a Cramant are increasingly worth seeking out and experiencing can provide some of the more ample and richly textured wines to be found that are grown on the original slopes of the Cotes des Blancs. 

 

Cheers!
